Abstract
THE EFFORT PROPOSED HERE WILL INVESTIGATE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING DIODE-PUMPED, SOLID STATE LASERS FOR USE IN SPACE-BASED, EYE-SAFE COHERENT LIDAR SYSTEMS. THE WORK WILL INCLUDE A THOROUGH THEORETICAL STUDY OF THREE POTENTIAL RARE-EARTH LASER IONS, ERBIUM, HOLMIUM AND THULIUM, AND WILL INCLUDE EXPERIMENTATION WITH THE ION CHOSEN AS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR PRACTICAL SPACE-BASED SYSTEMS.
