Research Institution
We propose the demonstration of a highly versatile system allowing computer controlled modulations formats achieving a minimum 5W at 532nm with 500Kpps repetition frequency and 800MHz intra-pulse modulation. This approach can easily be extended to other wavelengths of interest to the Navy by using the tunability afforded by Optical Fiber amplifiers (1020-1100nm for Yb:fiber and 1540-1600nm for Er/Yb:fiber). The flexibility in pulse modulation will open the door to an improved detection sensitivity for under-water Lidar applications.
