ABSTRACT: Q-Peak proposes to demonstrate a high-average-power, Band I and IV infrared source based on an innovative combination of an efficient fiber laser and a nonlinear optics wavelength converter. The technology is well-suited for integration into aircraft platforms. BENEFIT: The infrared source can be used as a missile countermeasure for combat air, land, and sea vehicles. Commercial applications include gas diagnostics, pollution monitoring, and basic science.
