Abstract
A high repetition rate 10Hz diode side pumped erbium glass laser transmitter for rangefinder and radar applications was demonstrated. Without cooling it was operated at 10Hz for more than 30 seconds. With forced air it was run continuously at 10Hz with an output of 5-10mj and 25-30nsec pulsewidth.
