Abstract:
Mariner-40m, PSL, Requirements, Laser Amplifier Requirements


  • Seed laser wavelength (2050 nm)
  • Seed laser power 100 mW
  • Seed linewidth: less than 1MHz (free-running from OPO)
    • Seed line width will reduce to ~1Hz when frequency stabilization is applied. Amplifier must support this.

  • Req'd output power: 5W-10W (stretch goal of 25W)
  • S-polarization
  • Output RIN = similar to NPRO
    • In range 10Hz-10kHz <= (5E-6)*(10Hz/f)^0.5
    • Low frequency variation (DC-1Hz) < 1%

  • Actuation of amplifier power (ideally 20dB).
  • Computer interface of amp?
