Abstract
THE WORK PROPOSED HERE WOULD DEVELOP A LASER THAT IS CRITICAL FOR SPACE-BASED COMBUSTION EXPERIMENTS: AN ALL-SOLID-STATE LASER FOR SPECTROSCOPIC ANALYSIS OF COMBUSTION AND OTHER REACTIVE MIXTURES. THE APPROACH TO SOLVING THIS PROBLEM HAS THE DISTINCT ADVANTAGE OF BEING BASED ON TI:SAPPHIRE, A TUNABLE LASER MATERIAL ALREADY UNDERDEVELOPMENT FOR SPACE-BASED LIDAR SYSTEMS. THE INNOVATION WE PROPOSE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FIRST, SPACE-QUALIFIABLE, TUNABLE LASER OF VISIBLE TO ULTRAVIOLET LASER SPECTROSCOPY.
