Abstract
THE PROPOSED EFFORT WILL ATTEMPT TO DEMONSTRATE RELIABLE AND EFFICIENT OPERATION OF A CDSE OPTICAL PARAMETRIC OSCILLATOR (OPO) PUMPED BY A SOLID-STATE 3 MICRON ERBIUM LASER. THE EXPECTED TUNING RANGE OF THE OPO IS 3.5-4.5 MICRONS. THIS PHASE I EFFORT REPRESENTS A FIRST STEP IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO GENERATE COHERENT RADIATION OF 4 MICRONS WITH AN ELECTRICAL TO OPTICAL CONVERSION EFFICIENCY GREATER THAN ONE PERCENT.
