Abstract:

Our project was aimed at finding solutions to one of the urgent problems facing mid-infrared laser development, namely, creating high-efficiency 2.3 micrometers and 3.3 micrometers electrical laser sources operating at room temperature. These lasers are essential for chemical sensing for pollution monitoring, leak detection, chemical process control, countermeasures against heat seeking missiles, IR illumination and can be used to engage terrestrial targets from space.
