AbstractWe propose to develop a solid state laser pumped 3-5 micron gas laser for tactical airborne countermeasure applications. This laser will be an alternative to damage prone nonlinear optics for down converting existing diode pumped solid state lasers into the mid-infrared. In Phase I we will examine existing data on mid-infrared gas lasers and existing solid state lasers and select a system that will satisfy the application requirements. In Phase II we will demonstrate the 3-5 micron laser system. The diode pumped solid state pump laser will be scaled to the 100 W level and will be available for other government or commercial applications.
