Abstract
Leveraging on our extensive production experience in fiber optical components and fiber lasers, AGILTRON proposes to develop a new novel high pulse energy tunable blue laser with doped ZBLAN fiber. Based on enhanced blue upconversion by properly selected co-doped materials, the proposed blue fiber laser will be able to generate high power. Furthermore, by using Agiltron’s proprietary beam combining technology, we will combine multiple fiber arrays together in a single fiber to produce high energy pulse output which has not been demonstrated before. In this Phase I Program, we will focus on the high pulse energy blue fiber laser design and development and high efficiency co-doped ZBLAN fiber design, development and testing. In addition, a pulsed and wavelength tuned seed laser prototype will be designed and demonstrated. A fully functional, compact high power blue laser prototype will be produced in Phase II.
