Abstract
Leveraging on our extensive production experience in fiber optical components and fiber lasers, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new high pulse energy tunable blue laser with doped ZBLAN fiber. Based on enhanced blue upconversion by properly selected co-dopant materials, the proposed blue fiber laser will be able to generate high power. Furthermore, using beam combing technology, we will combine multiple fiber arrays together to produce a new novel all fiber tunable, high rep rate, high energy pulsed output. In the Phase II Program, we will focus on the high pulse energy blue fiber laser design, development and testing. A pulsed and wavelength tuned seed laser will be designed and demonstrated followed by a fully functional and compact high power blue laser prototype.
