New Rare-Earth-Doped Glass Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers for 1.54 um Communications

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99T002
Budget: 09/14/99 - 02/14/00
PI: Mr. John D. Myers

The goal of this project is to develop new high performance Er/Yb-codoped phosphate glass cladded fibers for fabrication of miniature high efficiency lasers and amplifiers for 1.54 ?m optical communications systems. Kigre's highly developed MM-1, MM-2, and QX/Er Er/Yb-codoped phosphate glasses are well suited for use as 1.54 ?m oscillator amplif...

New Rare-Earth-Doped Glasses for Planar Waveguide Lasers & Amplifiers

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA96-T002
Budget: 02/05/98 - 02/06/01
PI: Mr. John D. Myers

This STTR Phase II project continues the development of a new glass (designated MM-i) for ion-exchange glass waveguides and amplifiers used in l.55 um optical communication systems. There is excellent commercial potential for these glass materials and the waveguide lasers (lossless splitters) and optical amplifiers that may be fabricated from th...

New Rare-Earth-Doped Glasses for Planar Waveguide Lasers & Amplifiers

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO96T002
Budget: 07/16/96 - 12/31/96
PI: Mr. John D. Myers

The goal of this project is to develop new superior Er/Yb-codoped phosphate glasses for fabrication of high performance ion-exchanged glass waveguide lasers and amplifiers for the 1.55 um optical communications systems. The phosphate glasses are developed such that they are well suitable for reproducible fabrication of high quality ion-exchange...

Optical Fiber COupled Integrated High-Low Energy Laser

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A94-020
Budget: 06/27/96 - 06/27/98
PI: Mr. Scott J. Hamlin

This Small Business Innovative Research Phase II project will continue the development of an integrated laser system that will deliver both intense high energy laser pulses and low energy, high peak power pulses from the same device. Current systems do not fully utilize both the high and low energy pulses. The systems that do incorporate a low e...

Optical Fiber COupled Integrated High-Low Energy Laser

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A94-020
Budget: 02/28/95 - 08/27/95
PI: Mr. Scott J. Hamlin

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is concerned with the development of an integrated laser system which can deliver both intense high energy laser pulses and low energy high peak power pulses from the same device. The purpose of such a device would be the use of high energy pulses for the ignition of a pyrotechnic or prope...
