The Laser Technology and Applications Group develops application-specific solid-state lasers, semiconductor lasers, and beam control and diagnostics for high-energy laser systems. Examples of research activities include creating cryogenic-laser-based illuminators for sensor applications, demonstrating wavelength and coherent laser-beam-combining techniques for scaling fiber amplifier and semiconductor laser arrays to higher brightness, and developing a ground terminal for an advanced NASA laser experiment to a moon-orbiting satellite. These activities span the range from epitaxial growth of semiconductor laser materials and demonstrating innovative laser devices in the laboratory to designing and field-testing complete optical systems.

An individual is needed to lead development of laser systems for directed energy, lidar, and optical countermeasures applications. Responsibilities include the design, construction, characterization, and analysis of laser systems. Additional responsibilities include developing proposals, program planning, briefing sponsors, and report writing.


MS with at least 15 years of experience or PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or equivalent. Experience in one or more of the following areas is desired: laser physics, adaptive optics, or electro-optical system development. Strong laboratory and analytical skills, excellent presentation skills, and the ability to work both individually and as part of a team are all essential.
