Paper Abstract

The design and background data for a sodium layer laser guide star system to be installed on the 3 meter telescope at Lick Observatory is presented. A 30 W dye laser at 589 nm and 10 kHz will be mounted on the telescope and will be pumped by fiber coupled, frequency doubled YAG laser located in a separate room.
