Abstract:

GOALS Novel use of alkalirare-gas molecules to efficiently couple high power diode arrays into alkali vapors -- Exciplex molecules absorb over much greater bandwidth Control of inherent high optical gain to minimize ASE and optimize laser oscillation Development of large volume resonators that allow efficient power extraction Demonstration of high electrical-to-optical efficiencypower Exciplex assisted diode Pumped Alkali Laser XPAL Education of a future generation of laser scientists.
