Paper Abstract

L-3 ALST has developed a Generalized Laser and Optics Simulation Suite (GLOSS) to quickly and reliably design high performance laser transmitters. GLOSS uses state of the art wave propagation based algorithms to rigorously simulate the dynamics of laser oscillation. Laser pulse energy, pulse width, beam size, beam shape, and divergence are among the many key performances parameters GLOSS models have the capability to predict. The GLOSS modeling methodology will be discussed and examples of its powerful capability will be demonstrated. Model predictions within 10-15% of actual laser performance data from a sample of experimental lasers will also be shown.
