Paper Abstract

The concept for a new approach to generating and receiving optical system for sodium guide star excitation based on solid-state laser technology and the stimulated Raman scattering/amplification in compressed gases is presented. Requirements to laser system for laser guide star generation are analyzed. The most promising SRS media are chosen.
