Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-018
Budget: 04/04/00 - 07/04/02

The proposed Yb fiber laser system offers unprecedented compactness, ruggedness, and simplicity. The simplicity enables the system to be used as modules for a fieldable midpower laser in force protection/projection environments. The Yb fiber, pumped by laser diode bars, utilizes an ultra simple coupling scheme that does not require highly coll...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-018
Budget: 04/30/99 - 03/13/00

We propose to investigate the feasibility of manufacturing a simple waveguide laser that would demonstrate all of the qualities of fiber lasers while utilizing the simple pumping scheme of an side pumped Nd:YAG laser. The Phase I effort will involve modeling of the system and Phase II will be construction of a prototype. We will investigate a wo...
