abstract

InP based diode lasers are required to realize the next generation of eyesafe applications, including direct rangefinding and HEL weapons systems. We report on the progress of high power eyesafe single spatial and longitudinal mode 1550nm MOPA devices, where we have achieved peak powers in excess of 10W with 50ns pulse widths. A conceptual model based on our recent MOPA results show the path towards scaling to high powers based on spatial beam combination with operating conditions suitable for direct rangefinding applications. We also report on the progress towards high power 14xx and 15xx nm pump lasers for eyesafe HEL systems.
