Paper Abstract

Laser remote sensing from satellites require efficient, long lifetime, maintenance-free tunable lasers and new solid state laser technology is emerging to meet these requirements. This new technology will provide lasers for the medical community capable of tunable operation over a broad wavelength range with factors of ten reductions in size, power and cooling requirements and maintenance costs while remaining competitive in cost with present laser technology.
