Abstract
Kigre is developing new scalable high gain broad band rare earth doped laser oscillator/amplifier glass materials & diode pump architectures in support of high energy and high power laser applications. What's new, exciting and different about Kigre's laser glass materials and constructs is the ability to efficiently store and extract 1000-10,000x more laser power from ultra-short gain lengths and unique composite laser element architectures. Kigre is uniquely suited to develop and produce materials and approaches to achieve scalable high efficiency, high power diode pumped solid-state laser performance for use in various directed energy, targeting, tracking, illumination, LIDAR, rangefinding, and free space optical communications programs.
