Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 03b
Budget: 04/10/17 - 04/09/19

Coherent X-Ray sources for bio-medical applications (imaging, treatment, basic research, etc.) have been classically limited to large synchrotron facilities. This program will use laser technology to reduce cost and complexity down to the laboratory scale, increasing the speed of research in these areas and lowering the costs.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Many emerging technologies in solar energy, electronics, and biophysics require a deep understanding of the behavior of materials on the nanoscale. Recent advances in high resolution chemical imaging show great promise for improving the resolution of widely applicable chemical imaging techniques. We propose to develop a commercial tunable, ultra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-063
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

We propose to combine a strecherless fiber amplification technique developed by KMLabs that produces sub-200 fs, 0.1 mJ-class pulses with a coherent pulse stacking technique developed at the University of Michigan to obtain mJ-class, femtosecond output pulses without relying on traditional chirped-pulse-ampltification. The coherent pulse stackin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 33d
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Our approach is to use DUV/VUV laser light to create the metastable Krypton used for dating ground water. The current arc method used leads to contamination of the electrodes, and therefore a lengthy cleaning process before another sample can be analyzed. In this work we propose to use single or multi-photon excitation through DUV/VUV laser sys...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

Coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) for short-wavelength imaging has proven revolutionary, allowing for the first time imaging with high numerical aperture and simultaneous phase- and amplitude-contrast. This development has created high commercial interest from the semiconductor and bio-medical industry as well as nano-science. Coherent extreme ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11a
Budget: 02/17/15 - 11/16/15

Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: In this project, we propose to develop waveguides specific to high harmonic generation, that are more efficient than standard HHG waveguides, can handle pressures in excess of > 30 bar, minimize losses for wavelengths > 1 m, and can be manufactured with ultrafast micromachining...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10a
Budget: 02/17/15 - 11/16/15

Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: In this project, we propose to develop a high repetition rate, 100 nm ultrafast source for spectroscopy, and imaging using Ytterbium laser technology for hollow core fiber resonant enhanced 5th harmonic generation. Currently, there are no commercial or scientific sources with the com...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Colorado Boulder, Jila

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT11
Budget: 04/01/14 - 03/31/16

ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nano-scale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for several reasons including: resolution, elemental specificity, and the ability to image internal stru...
