This report discusses activities related to the testing of various components of an optical radar transmitter using the master oscillator-power amplifier MOPA concept. The transmitter employs a continuous-wave room-temperature YAGNd3 oscillator, neodymium-doped-glass amplifiers, Kerr-cell modulator, and Faraday isolators and circulator. Also included in this report is a detailed discussion of neodymium-doped hosts and their application in laser components. Various aspects of optical radar were discussed at RADC in February and these data, together with a paper on coherent laser radar, are presented as appendixes to this report. Author
