Abstract

We propose to build a novel eyesafe fiber laser source capable of operating over the 20-100 kHz repetition rate range. Using a combination of COTS technology from the telecom industry and amplifier designs based upon recent developments at Naval Research Labs, the source will deliver 7-10 Watts while maintaining pulse duration
