Abstract
In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier by developing an innovative Er-doped gain fiber with large core diameter and high gain per unit length. 1.55 micron single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier is needed for coherent lidar and sensing. In Phase I, we will design and fabricate this new fiber, demonstrate high gain per unit length and high efficiency, and demonstrate high energy and high peak power fiber amplifier with a short piece of gain fiber. Successful demonstration of such a fiber amplifier will enable many new NASA and commercial applications.
