Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-007
Budget: 03/25/14 - 03/24/16

Diode Pumped Alkali Vapor Lasers (DPAL) are a promising technology for high power directed energy lasers because of several favorable characteristics, notably the small quantum defect which results in very little deposition of waste heat in the lasing medium and potentially good conversion efficiency and beam quality. Existing diode pumps have...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB122-006
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Using a unique high power diffraction-limited spectrally tailored diode platform, we are developing 976 nm fiber-coupled pump modules with extremely high spatial and spectral brightness characteristics.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB122-006
Budget: 11/08/12 - 08/05/13

High brightness directed energy lasers based on combining beams generated by fiber lasers and amplifiers require fiber-coupled 976 nm diode laser pumps with spatial and spectral brightness that exceed current state-of-the-art. We will meet these requirements by adapting 1060 nm MOPA designs with which we have demonstrated operation at brightnes...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-112
Budget: 11/02/12 - 04/28/13

As part of an effort funded by HEL-JTO, we recently demonstrated advanced quantum well diode laser designs with enhanced confinement operating at 1500 nm that substantially advanced the state-of-the-art with regard to efficiency, high operating temperature and beam quality. Similar enhanced confinement designs will be implemented at 808 nm to gr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-047
Budget: 12/14/09 - 06/30/10

Pump diode modules operating at 15xx nm for eye-safe fiber lasers with extremely high spatial and spectral brightness and good efficiency are proposed. Key elements include arrays of high power single-mode single-frequency diodes and efficient thermal management techniques.
