Abstract
The overall goal of the proposed project is to develop a Volume Bragg Grating (VBG) controlled surface emitting laser for pumping of low pressure Rb vapor laser. This approach will provide dramatic decrease of specific volume of a pumping lase system and, therefore, will dramatically decrease the size of the whole system enabling 100+ kW operating range. The goal of the Phase I project is to demonstrate an opportunity to lock GCSEL at maximum pumping current to 10 GHz wide line with spectral contrast up to 30 dB.
