Description

This facility, unique within DoD, power-combines numerous cutting-edge fiber-coupled laser diode modules (FCLDM) to integrate pumping of high power rare earth-doped fiber lasers. Selected pump wavelengths are eyesafe and minimize heat deposition in the fiber, an important factor for scaling the laser to high powers for directed energy weapon (DEW) applications. The design has the flexibility to test new fiber lasers from ARL and other DoD laboratories up to kilowatt-class powers, enabling performance projections to much higher powers.
