Research Institution
Future military laser-based defensive systems (LBDSs) will incorporate high peak energy (~1 mJ) ultrashort pulse ( The proposed work will demonstrate the feasibility of developing an innovative mid infrared HC-PBG fiber. The fiber will be designed with high confinement (>99%) to enable ultrashort pulses (<1 ps) with high peak energy (~1 mJ) to be transmitted with low-losses (<.1 dB/m) in the wavelength region between 2-5 microns.
