Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

The laser absorption spectrometer approach offers the potential to provide the high-accuracy carbon dioxide mixing ratio measurements with the vertical and horizontal spatial resolution that is desired by the carbon cycle research community. It is generally agreed that 2.05 micron wavelength absorption band of carbon dioxide can offer good diffe...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Atmospheric methane is the second most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas. The overtone lines of methane at 1.65 micron are well suited for remote sensing of atmospheric methane in the Earth's atmosphere. NASA have already demonstrated ground-based and airborne methane detection using Optical Parametric Amplifiers at 1651 nm using a laser wi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-015
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

Through years of experience developing low loss fiber pump combiners operating to multi kilowatt (kW) levels, Optical Engines has mastered the technology for producing fiber optic tapers with precise dimensions and very low loss. This technology allows for the transition to tapers in the Photonic wire region where the fiber core dimensions ar...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT02
Budget: 09/22/15 - 06/22/16

ABSTRACT: The development of mid-infrared (Mid-IR) transparent fibers having low propagation loss in the wavelength range 2-5 micron, robust mechanical properties, low temperature sensitivity and high laser power delivery capability has been investigated extensively in the last decade. Chalcogenide glass fibers, fluoride glass fibers, tellurite ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the prospect of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of highly efficient 1.94 micron fiber laser as the pumping source of Ho doped crystal lasers for LASA's lidar applications. New Tm-doped glasses and...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build high pulse energy near 1.55 micron wavelength single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative polarization maintaining Er-doped gain fiber with extremely large mode field diameter. Such a single frequency high energy and high peak power fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and se...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 38e
Budget: 04/06/15 - 04/05/17

To address the DoE need for a high-power laser source used for synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, AdValue Photonics proposes to develop a radio-frequency synchronized 100W mode-locked green laser source at a GHz rate. Previously-demonstrated GHz-rate modelocked solid-state/fiber lasers suffer from a reliability issue due to t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-150
Budget: 09/09/14 - 12/09/16

ABSTRACT: Coherent imaging systems have the capability to provide high-resolution 3D imagery for target identification at stand-off ranges. These systems require relatively short pulse width, transform-limited linewidth pulsed lasers with high pulse energy to illuminate the target of interest. Here we proposed to demonstrate and build near 1550n...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF13-AT03
Budget: 05/15/14 - 09/14/14

ABSTRACT: AdValue Photonics and University of Arizona propose to demonstrate the capability of fabricating wavelength division multiplexers (WDM) for high-power fiber laser applications. It is based on AdValue Photonics unique fused fiber technology using large-mode-area (LMA) fibers. Both polarization-maintaining (PM) and non-PM LMA fiber WDMs...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-005
Budget: 05/13/14 - 11/17/14

AdValue Photonics propose a novel single-frequency fiber laser that will be able to deliver high-power, narrow-linewidth, shot-noise-limited laser beam at 1550nm for high-end RF photonics applications. It is based on AdValue Photonics unique high gain fiber technology. By the end of Phase I, we will demonstrate the feasibility of the concept, i...
