Research Institution
A rugged and efficient high power blue laser source in the 455 – 500 nm spectral region is proposed. The source will be capable of either cw or pulsed operation (at multi-kHz repetition rate) and offers tunable, wavelength output in the blue spectral region. The concept is based on frequency conversion of a novel fiber amplifier (MOPA) configuration. Such blue laser sources are ideally suited for antisubmarine warfare (ASW), underwater imaging and communication applications, medical applications, and display technologies.
