Paper Abstract

A new conduction cooled compact laser for SuperCam LIBS-RAMAN instrument aboard Mars 2020 Rover is presented. An oscillator generates 30mJ at 1µm with a good spatial quality. A Second Harmonic Generator (SHG) at the oscillator output generates 15 mJ at 532 nm. A RTP electro-optical switch, between the oscillator and SHG, allows the operation mode selection (LIBS or RAMAN). Qualification model of this laser has been built and characterised. Environmental testing of this model is also reported.
