Authors: Jeffrey O. White
Date/Pages: January 2014; 40 pages
Abstract: This technical note is the final report for the 2013 Directed Energy Internship program at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. Four interns were mentored by three Government employees. The projects included a fluorescence-based determination of quantum efficiency, the coupling efficiency between two fibers separated by an air gap, the fractal dimension of rare-earth energy levels, a power-scalable 2×2 opto-electronic combiner/router, and incoherent power combining of a megawatt-class high energy laser-diode system. The reports written by the interns are included as appendices.
