Nonlinear Optics at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Weapons and Materials Research Directorate

Report No. ARL-SR-222
Authors: Anthony Valenzuela, Andrew Porwitzky, and Chase Munson
Date/Pages: March 2011; 16 pages
Abstract: We provide an overview of efforts and interest in studying directed energy and ultrashort pulse lasers in the U.S. Army Research Laboratory's Weapons and Materials Research Directorate (WMRD). WMRD's interest in nonlinear optics lies primarily in target effects of filaments impacting on solid surfaces. In addition, we are keenly interested in on-going work in the theory and modeling of the basic physical understanding of propagation through atmosphere and particulates.
