Title Intensity Scaling for Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers.
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 3p
Personal Author G. Perram
Abstract Laser weapons may find broad military applications against many types of targets from tactical to strategic missions on the ground, sea, air, and in space. The highest priority and nearest term applications are the defense against ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, rockets, artillery, and mortars. Recent progress in developing diode-pumped solid-state lasers has been dramatic and enables electrically driven systems. However, thermal management and associated beam quality issues continue to stress the design and may limit employability and effectiveness.
