Abstract

Arete is proposing a trade study, evaluating multiple laser technologies and their potentials to meet the Navy’s performance and SWaP requirements.  The trade study will include approaches with incremental development paths through improvements in laser efficiency as well as higher risks approaches with a potential for breakthrough advances.   The evaluated approaches will include novel manufactured gain materials as well as previously studied gain materials with renewed interest resulting from the availability of GaN diode lasers for pumping.  Multiple new approaches will be evaluated as alternatives to Q-Switching to allow energy storage and dumping for high peak-power optical pulses.
