Research Institution
Next generation lasers for Missile Defense ranging applications require scaling pulse brightness and repetition rates in compact and efficient packages. To address this need, nLIGHT proposes to significantly increase the pulse energy of a passively Q-switched diode pumped solid state laser while maintaining excellent beam quality in an efficient master- oscillator power amplifier architecture.
