Paper Abstract

The unique demands of space-based lasers for atmospheric remote sensing require the development of high efficiency, narrow line width lasers throughout the .280 pm to 10.0 μm region. The combination of laser performance requirements, large number of candidate laser materials, and complex mathematical models necessitates the development of an integrated, computerized software system consisting of a database, laser models, and a user-friendly software interface. Such a three part software system for laser design is under development. The three parts include: a database of laser, optical, and nonlinear materials; laser component, amplifier, resonator, and oscillator models; and a menu-driven interface.
