Abstract
An experimental evaluation of different resonator designs has been performed in order to verify the feasibility of a pulsed CO2 laser source for spaceborne Doppler LIDAR with a self-sustained TEA discharge channel. A laser with 10 J of energy/pulse, 1.2 is FWHM pulselength, less than 200 kHz frequency chirp has been demonstrated using a 5x5x100 cm3 active medium volume and a modified Self Filtering Unstable Resonator (SFUR) optical design.
