An Athermal Laser Product Concept

Chuck Ratermann provided this slide deck about an athermal laser concept that he is working on. One advantage is that it is does not require any warm up time.

Chuck reports that, “There will be high energy units (starting at 30 mJ at 1064 nm, and up to 250 mJ or higher) low rep rate units and these are important for military systems that the likes of Ball and Textron and LMCO and NGC and DRS (and many others use) … and these are deployed for all these uses.  The high rep rate version 10kHz and higher will be used more for lidars on systems where the weight and size are critical such as on UAV’s.”
