Abstract
Numerous government and commercial applications of diode pumped solid state lasers (DPSSL) are emerging making it a true dual use technology. Military applications include countermeasures, remote sensing ,targettracking, and lidar. Civilian space applications include lidar for wind measurements and other remote sensing needs. Use of laser machine tools for manufacturing is growing rapidly for welding, cutting, drilling, and surface treatment applications. DPSSL technology has advanced rapidly due to government funded efforts and through corporate research programs. Power scaling to the 3-10 kW level is at hand. The technology has matured to the point that both military and laser manufacturing applications are becoming practical.
