Abstract : The objective of this project was to develop, fabricate, and deliver a computer controlled acoustooptically mode locked Titanium Sapphire laser for the Vision Biophysics Function of the Clinical Sciences Division of the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM). The mode locking pulse rate was to be synchronized to the pulse rate of a Nd:YAG mode locked laser at the Vision Function. The frequency doubled output of the USAFSAM Nd:YAG laser is to serve as a pump for the Titanium Sapphire laser.
