Paper Abstract

We review possible alternatives for the realization of the LISA laser assembly against the requirements and present a concept for a tailored master oscillator fiber power amplifier solution. An all-solid-state, all- fiber coupled approach with a Nd:YAG NPRO seed appears particularly attractive due to the possibility to combine excellent spectral properties and high output powers with superior environmental robustness.
