Abstract
Frequency agile, intermediate power laser is being developed for diffractive beam steering and remote laser induced emission spectroscopy from spaceborne platforms. The system is an efficient compact, tunable, solid-state laser designed by combining the advent of high power laser diode arrays, with the unique characteristics of the new laser crystal, Cr:LiSAF. The laser which has a tuning range extending from 780 to 1010 nm will be Q-switched at up to 1 kHz repetition rate and frequency doubled using a second harmonic generator crystal to generate short pulses with 1 mJ/pulse energy, and tunable in the 390-500 nm range. The laser system is a logical extension of the conventional solid-state lasers with substantial improvements of efficiency, size, weight, and repetition rate.
