AbstractNot Available The Institute for Laser Technology (ILT), as the prime contractor, the University of Southern California Center for Laser Studies (USC-CLS) and Raytheon Systems Company, as subcontractors, propose to develop a compact, robust, OPO tuner for solid state lasers that can be integrated with fieldable sensors for the detectionof chemical and biological agents. Initial application to manportable sensors is envisioned with straightforward extension to other platforms such as unmanned aerial vehicles where size and weight are critical design factors. The tuner will utilize simple opto-mechanical assemblies and control electronics and it will be applicable to wavelength shifting in the 3-5 and 8-12 micron bands at a shift rate of at least 50 Hz. The main objective of the Phase I effort is to demonstrate wavelength shifting accuracy and repeatibility as a basis for the Phase IT effort under which a prototype unit will be developed and delivered. BENEEFITS: The proposed tuner is a critical component of chemical and biological agent standoff sensors that would provide the military with a much needed capability. The technology is directly applicable to the important civilian application of pollution monitoring.
