Conference Poster
The development of advanced laser systems has paved the way for spaceborne laser applications like Earth’s atmosphere and surface monitoring. Prominent technologies like Nd:YAG are often exploited, however they have proven a challenge to combine the different requirements for space missions. High optical efficiencies and tunable wavelength, which are desirable for many applications, can be reconciled with a simple laser design employing Alexandrite crystals. Horizon 2020 project presented here focuses on the development of high quality and high performance coated Alexandrite crystals along with the construction of a laboratory prototype Alexandrite laser system with specifications suitable for Earth observation missions.
