The Laser Technology and Applications Group develops application-specific solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers, and beam control and diagnostics for high-energy laser systems. Examples of research activities include creating cryogenic-laser-based illuminators for sensor applications, demonstrating wavelength and coherent laser-beam-combining techniques for scaling fiber amplifier and semiconductor laser arrays to higher brightness, and developing a ground terminal for an advanced NASA laser experiment to a moon-orbiting satellite. These activities span the range from epitaxial growth of semiconductor laser materials and demonstrating innovative laser devices in the laboratory to designing and field-testing complete optical systems.
