  1. Adaptive Optics controlled nonlinear propagation of USLP

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  2. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N17AT024

    Ultra-short pulse lasers have advantages over continuous-wave lasers for directed-energy applications due to the high peak powers that can be reached. Directed-energy weapons are profoundly limited by the aberrations caused by atmospheric turbulence and current adaptive optics can correct for these aberrations only when the propagation medium is reciprocal. Unfortunately, nonlinear effects in the ...
