  3. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    The DoD requires new sources of eye safe, short pulse, laser radiation to enable the next generation laser radar (LADAR) seekers. Conventional eye safe laser sources using diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) and optical parametric oscillator (OPO) technologies have difficulties to meet the packaging requirements and to operate with constant pulse width at variable repetition rate. Also, the e ...

  5. Wavelength Conversion of Pulsed Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: SB052027

    First generation mid-infrared lasers contribute to the prohibitively high life cycle cost of infrared countermeasures systems, precluding their broad application in helicopters. We propose to develop a fiber amplifier-based IRCM laser transmitter that will contain all optical beams within optical fiber, eliminating adjustable, discrete, optical mounts, to significantly increase the laser's MTBF. ...

  6. Solid State Laser Providing Efficient Conversion to the UV for Proliferation Detection

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: 48

    78807 The remote detection of chemical signatures for nuclear proliferation, requires a pump laser capable of driving a tunable ultraviolet light source. The pump laser must be compact and efficient, and produce a very high quality beam. This project will build a pump laser with a relatively new laser material, Yb:S-FAP, developed by the DOE at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Yb:S-FAP a ...

  7. Fiber-Based Ultraviolet Laser System

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: S401

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser system for use in space-based uv-Raman instruments. The basis for this system will be a modulated diode seed laser followed by a fiber amplifier which is frequency-quadrupled to generate uv light at 245nm. The unique combination of a compact and efficient fiber amplifier with efficient harmonic generation will pro ...

  8. Development of an optical brain/nerve stimulator

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In a novel technological breakthrough in neural stimulation, our collaborators at Vanderbilt University have developed a new modality that uses low intensity pulsed infrared laser light instead of electrical energy to elicit compound nerve and muscle potentials. Optical stimulation can induce spatially precise, highly controlled and artifact-free action potenti ...
