Abstract : Several laser systems were acquired using the funds under the AFOSR Research Instrumentation Program. The following laser systems were purchased: (1) 20-W continuous-wave mode-locked Antares Nd:YAG laser from Coherent. (2) Cr:forsterite regenerative amplifier, pulse stretcher, and pulse compressor were custom built by Excel/Quantronix. The regenerative amplifier is pumped by a Excel/Quantronix 20-W 1- kHz Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. (3) Four high-brightness 1-W 970-nm Spectra Diode Laser semiconductor diode lasers. jg p1
