Abstract
Advanced IRCM lasers and systems, currently in development, require mid-infrared semiconductor lasers with very non-standard design parameters. The proposed effort will investigate the performance of commercially grown GaSb based materials and optimizetheir performance for use in unique laser transmitter designs, which will be directly traceable to future IRCM systems. The proposed mid-infrared laser technology has potential applications in spectroscopic gas sensing systems for environmentalmonitoring, explosive detection and industrial process monitoring sensors.
