    High energy laser (HEL) weapons are ready for some of today"s most challenging military applications. For example, the Airborne Laser (ABL) program is designed to defend against Theater Ballistic Missiles in a tactical war scenario. Similarly, the Tactical High Energy Laser (THEL) program is currently testing a laser to defend against rockets and other tactical weapons. High Energy Laser Mirrors. REO's proprietary superpolishing fabrication and precision IBS coatings provide very low surface scatter, resulting in very highly reflective and enviromentally stable high energy laser mirrors. Reflectivity levels can be above % and scatter and absorption below 1 ppm at certain wavelengths.

There’s joint cooperation on high-energy lasers as well, led by Thomas Karr, the Pentagon’s assistant director for directed energy. Within the Army budget for , the biggest item by far is.

      The Navy will field versions of both its highest-power laser weapon and its low-end non-lethal laser dazzler later this year, gaining operational experience with directed energy .   The progress in the laser technology makes it possible to produce a laser pulse having a peak power of over PW. Focusing such high-power laser pulses enables ones to have unprecedentedly strong laser intensity. The laser intensity over W/cm2, which is called the relativistic laser intensity, can accelerate electrons almost to the speed of light.

This book delves deeply into the real-world technologies behind the ‘directed energy weapons’ that many believe exist only within the confines of science fiction. On the contrary, directed energy weapons such as high energy lasers are very real, and this book provides a crash course in all theBrand: Springer International Publishing.

About the Author. Bahman Zohuri is founder of Galaxy Advanced Engineering, Inc., formed upon his departure from the semiconductor and defense 5/5(1).

This book gives the readers an introduction to experimental and theoretical knowledge acquired by large-scale laser laboratories that are dealing with extra–high peak power and ultrashort laser pulses for research of terawatt (TW), petawatt (PW), or near-future exawatt (EW) laser interactions, for soft X-ray sources, for acceleration of particles, or for generation of hot dense thermal Cited by: 3.

The first high energy lasers were demonstrated in the mids and have made tremendous strides over the past 40+ years. This paper presents a sampling of the older work, some recent high energy Author: David L.

Carroll. This book displays the physics and design of high-power molecular lasers. The lasers described are self-controlled volume-discharge lasers. The book explains self-sustained discharge lasers, self-initiated discharge lasers and technical approaches to laser design.

Important topics discussed are. The Tactical High-Energy Laser, or THEL, was a laser developed for military use, also known as the Nautilus laser mobile version is the Mobile Tactical High-Energy Laser, orthe United States and Israel entered into an agreement to produce a cooperative THEL called the Demonstrator, which would utilize deuterium fluoride chemical laser technologies.

Joint High Power Solid-State Laser. InDirected Energy Systems reached new heights with its scalable building block approach for compact, electric laser weapons when it produced the most powerful light ray created by an electric laser at that time, measured at more than kilowatts (kW) under the U.S.

military's Joint High Power Solid State Laser (JHPSSL) program. Laser mid-infrared systems, laser induced breakdown spectroscope and the clinical applications of surgical solid-state lasers are also explored.

The use of solid-state lasers in defense programs is then reviewed, before the book concludes by presenting some environmental applications of solid-state lasers. Successful developments of high energy high repetition rate P-P powerful lasers technology and technology of “Impulsar” system make it possible to foresee the possibility of well conducting channels realization with the length up to several ten and hundreds of kilometers for the purpose of energy transfer for significant distances, creation of new and promising systems for the mastering of.
