Ultra-Short-Pulse Laser Effects Research and Analysis Laboratory

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

FUNCTION: Enables research into advanced laser countermeasure techniques.DESCRIPTION: This laser facility has a capability to produce very high peak power levels of 27.5 TW while maintaining a low average power of 11 W. This combination keeps the laser physically compact, permitting potential tactical applications. To determine the critical aspects of the laser and test system interaction, the laser facility[HTML_REMOVED]s temperature is tightly controlled and the humidity is held to a low level. Vibration isolation is also a key feature of the facility.INSTRUMENTATION: The key component in the facility is an ultra-short-pulse laser with very high peak power. The operating environment has a tightly controlled temperature and low-humidity system. A foundation separate from the rest of the building isolates the laser from the normal building vibrations. Measurement instrumentation monitors the performance of the laser and the systems that are excited by the laser.
