Wednesday, October 2nd at 3pm, Patrick Maine will present “Spaceborne Fiber Lasers For Ranging Applications” in “Laser Sources for Lidar & Free Space Communication” session.
Abstract : We report on recent developments of pulsed radiation- tolerant fiber-lasers for spaceborne ranging. They generate 6kW peak power and have been tested in relevant environments. Divergence variation of a high precision collimator is also reported.
