Abstract
SEO PROPOSES A PHASE I STUDY PROGRAM TO ASSESS THE FEASIBILITY OF A RADIATION HARD Q-SWITCHED ND:CR:GSGG FIBER LASER FOR USE IN A FIBER OPTICS ORDNANCE SYSTEM. SEO WILL IMPROVE COUPLING EFFICIENCY BETWEEN THE INITIATOR AND OPTICAL FIBERS AND ALSO IMPROVE IONIZATION RESISTANCE TO NUCELAR WEAPONS EFFECTS. ND:CR:GSGG FIBER WILL BE USED FOR THE LASER BREADBOARD. THE ND:CR;GSGG MATERIAL HAS BEEN TESTED TO 10,000 RAD DOSE LEVEL. THE SELECTION OF OTHER LASER COMPONENTS INCLUDING PUMP SOURCE, Q-SWITCH, BEAM POLARIZERS, AND DIELECTRIC COATINGS WILL BE MADE BASED ON THEIR PERFORMANCE AT SIMILAR DOSE LEVELS. THE BREADBOARD ASSEMBLED WILL BE A FLASHLAMP/LASER DIODE PUMPED ND:CR:GSGG FIBER LASER SOURCE.
