Fibertek proposes a novel architecture which relies on advancements in fiber technology to dramatically improve the efficiency of the IR stage of green light generation.  By removing the comparatively lossy solid-state amplifier, this architecture can achieve more than double the efficiency of current state-of-the-art high energy systems while maintaining a comparatively small footprint.  In addition, as the only free space components in the system are the in the SHG module, the system is comparatively resistant to vibration, which can be critical for fielding. This architecture benefits from Fibertek’s expertise in pulsed fiber amplifiers.  The fiber amplifier requires seed energy for efficient extraction.  Fibertek has demonstrated the capability for such amplifiers already.  Multiple stages of amplification will be used. The output of the final amplifier will split to be able to seed multiple amplifiers individually.
