Abstract
QuantTera is developing a near-IR tunable laser for space based laser communications. We have developed a unique material system that is optimal for tuning of wavelengths from 1300 nm to 1500 nm. This platform will achieve wavelength resolution of 0.1 pm with tuning speeds greater than 100 nm/s with output powers exceeding 4 mW. The materials are radiation hard and have demonstrated long life for space applications.
