Paper Abstract

The ocular hazards associated with high peak power laser rangefinders can be avoided in systems which emit in the spectral range A λ⪆ 1.4μm. We describe the operation of a 1.73μm laser in erbium-doped lithium yttrium fluoride (Er3+:YLF) and discuss two ranging systems which utilize this 1.73μm laser source.
