The purpose of the program performed under this contract is to continue the research on 10.6-micrometer image upconversion detectors and to determine the feasibility of developing a 10.6-micrometer range-gated upconversion imaging laser radar receiver with 150 by 150 resolution elements. To meet the program objectives, the following areas were studied Experimental determination of the effect of a diverging pump on image resolution for the image space configuration upconverter system and comparison of the results with analytical prediction Analytical determination of the effect of birefringence and a truncated pump beam on image resolution Development of techniques to handle power dissipation inside the nonlinear crystal and, Investigation of techniques for improvement of optical efficiency.
