Abstract:

This report describes work performed under the NavyDARPA Submarine Laser Communications Program. Phase I of this program calls for a laboratory demonstration of a 1 joule laser source emitting in the 450-510 nm region of the spectrum with an efficiency of 1. IN order to meet these goals, Northrop Research and Technology Center has developed a Raman down-converted XeC1 laser. Results of this experimentaltheoretical research are presented.
