DARPA is soliciting innovative research proposals in the field of UV laser technology that will enable enhanced detection and discrimination of specific biological and chemical compounds using Raman spectroscopy. The goal of the Laser UV Sources for Tactical Efficient Raman (LUSTER) program is to develop compact, efficient, high-power ultraviolet lasers capable of achieving output power >1 W, wall-plug efficiency >10%, linewidth < 0.01 nm and all at wavelengths between 220-240 nm. Various methods such as direct electrical injection, electron beam pumping, second harmonic generation or other alternatives will be considered as long as all of the metrics can be met or exceeded. See the full DARPA-BAA-14-20 document attached.
