Abstract

High peak power, high efficiency, high reliability lightweight, low cost QCW laser diode pump modules with up to 1000W of QCW output become possible with nLight's new laser diode package methodology. Following the design principles from our Phase I results, we propose an innovative packaging architecture to provide NASA with highly reliable 808nm laser diode pump sources for space based LADAR systems or other uses. nLight proposes a package development program to demonstrate up to 1000W of QCW pump power, with greater than 100E8 laser shot reliability.
