We report on the successful delivery of a 30 W solid-state sodium Guide Star Laser System (GLS) to the W. M. Keck Observatory in 2009, and the demonstration of a 55 W GLS delivered to the Gemini South Observatory in 2010. This paper describes the GLS performance results of both the Keck I and Gemini South GLSs with an emphasis on the system design and delivered performance. The 589 nm output was generated via Sum Frequency Mixing (SFM) of 1064 nm and 1319 nm Nd:YAG lasers in a LBO (Lithium...[Show more]
