Inspired by: I have been working with NASA for almost 19 years. Frequently, I come across many new inventions, which make me think "wow". These new inventions inspire me and make me think of new possibilities. At NASA-Goddard Center, the focus is on sending satellites to space with highly sophisticated lasers to do all sorts of space measurements. These lasers are designed according to a set of criteria such as size, mass, power consumption and to withstand harsh temperature and vibration.
My invention is unique in its design. It is compact, lightweight, rugged and inexpensive. It satisfies all the space-laser criteria. It uses less pumping threshold energy than current fiber and solid-state lasers. It can emit any set of laser lines of interest to replaces expensive multiple lasers on the same mission. It can be built to emit high and low levels of power. It is also of potential in our phone and internet fiber communication, computers, sensors, toys, optical computing, etc.
