Abstract
This Proposal addresses the need for high average power (HAP), near-diffraction-limited laser sources for laser stripping applications, an important process for going forward with plans to build an 8 GeV H- to proton injector source for driving upgraded Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory proton accelerators. The overall objective of the proposed program is to apply high average power ultrafast cryogenic laser technology developed by Snake Creek Lasers to demonstrate efficient high average power laser sources with excellent beam-quality for laser stripping applications. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Laser technology developed under this proposed program will have applications in national laboratories for laser stripping and photocathode illumination, and in the commercial sector for laser texturing, selective ablation, wrap-through, and other micromachining applications to the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries. The high efficiency and average power available from cryogenic lasers will significantly increase process throughput and reduce carbon emissions
