Paper Abstract

Diode pumped alkali vapor lasers (DPAL) is a rising high-energy laser. The wavelength of which is consistent with the response curve peak position of solar cell, and it has broad application prospects in laser directed energy transfer. The paper bases on the application of solar unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) energy transfer in high altitude and longendurance conditions. For the first time by using the MODTRAN and FASCODE, we calculate the transmittance of Potassium, rubidium, cesium laser in the typical atmospheric conditions vertically and different angles of atmospheric slant path by the numbers, The result shows that DPAL has a very high atmospheric transmittance, and also a valuable reference in other applications with the atmospheric transmission.
