  5. 1.57 Micron High Pulse Energy Single Frequency Fiber Laser

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S1

    We propose to demonstrate and build a 1.572 micron single frequency high pulse energy and high peak power fiber laser by using an innovative Er-doped gain fiber with large core diameter and high gain per unit length. 1.572 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber laser is needed for accurately measuring column CO2 concentrations. In Phase II, we will optimize the doping concen ...

  7. Ultra-Stable Zero-CTE HoneySiC and H2CMN Mirror Support Structures

    SBC: FANTOM MATERIALS INC.            Topic: S203

    NASA MSFC, GSFC and JPL are interested in Ultra-Stable Mirror Support Structures for Exoplanet Missions. Telescopes with Apertures of 4-meters or larger and using an internal coronagraph require a telescope wavefront stability that is on the order of 10 pico-meters RMS per 10 minutes. Interest is also for IR/FIR missions requiring 8-meter or larger diameter mirrors with cryogenic deformations

  9. Compact High Pulse Energy Single Frequency Fiber Amplifier

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    Atmospheric methane is the second most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas. The overtone lines of methane at 1.65 micron are well suited for remote sensing of atmospheric methane in the Earth?s atmosphere. NASA have already demonstrated ground-based and airborne methane detection using Optical Parametric Amplifiers at 1651 nm using a laser with a narrow linewidth. In this setup a single frequen ...

  10. Low Coherence Wavefront Probe for Nanometer Level Free-Form Metrology

    SBC: APRE INSTRUMENTS, L.L.C.            Topic: S204

    We propose an innovative, low coherence probe for rapid measurement of free-form optical surfaces based on a novel method of spectrally controlled interferometry. The key innovations are the use of a new interferometric modality and a novel non-contact optical probe that together measure high surface slope acceptance angles to nanometer sensitivity. When the probe is integrated with a precision mo ...
