Abstract
The Navy needs high energy short pulsed (1-20ns) pulsed blue lasers for ASW purposes. The current technology lasers are bulky and low efficiency. Princeton Optronics proposes to develop a vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) based high power pulsed blue laser which offers to deliver high energy pulses in a very small size with high efficiency. The potential for such laser has already been demonstrated with high energy pulsed laser output arrays with this technology. In phase I, we demonstrated frequency doubled blue laser with this technology and studied its characteristics and means to deliver high power from the array and meet the specifications in the solicitation. In phase II we want to improve the power level and other characteristics of the laser device and make a large array to demonstrate the high energy pulsed array meeting the Navy specifications.
