Abstract:

The objective of the work described in this report was the demonstration and delivery of a modelocked, frequency doubled, conductively cooled, solar pumped laser, designed to prototype space qualifiable level and structurally compatible with the EFM lamp pumped laser developed under AF contract No. F33615-74-C-1028. The laser was required to provide a minimum of 250 mW of 0.53 micrometers radiation, mode locked at an average prf of 500 MHz with a pulse width of less than 300 ps. The laser actually produced 400 mW with 280 ps pulses with a NdCrYAG laser rod. Maximum power was 480 mW with 560 ps pulses.
