Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-093
Budget: 07/31/15 - 07/30/16

In the proposed project, we will design, fabricate, and demonstrate a prototype UVA laser module with greater than 0.5W output power. The laser source will consist of a semiconductor laser array that has been coherently combined using a Self-Fourier (SF) cavity. The laser output will be a diffraction-limited beam with an M2 less than 1.2. The re...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-044
Budget: 04/20/11 - 04/19/13

ABSTRACT: In this project, a high power laser transmitter will be designed and demonstrated suitable for satellite communication. The laser source will consist of a high-power diode laser array with the individual laser elements coherently combined using a Self-Fourier cavity to provide a high-power diffraction-limited output. Standard modulat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-028
Budget: 05/07/10 - 11/06/10

The proposed project, in partnership with Nufern, will demonstrate the feasibility to scale high power fiber laser at the eyesafe wavelength of 2 microns up to 75-kW power level and beyond. This will be accomplished using an array of extremely large area core by means of a Self-Fourier cavity monolithically attached to the individual fiber las...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-044
Budget: 03/08/10 - 12/08/10

The proposed project, in partnership with nLight, will demonstrate the feasibility to coherently combine a high-power monolithic array of diode lasers using a Self-Fourier cavity for use in satellite communication systems. The Phase I project will experimentally demonstrate the coherent coupling of a monolithic array of diode lasers emitting at...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-191
Budget: 12/17/08 - 12/17/10

A world-record 250 Watt multicore fiber laser will be demonstrated with a single, diffraction-limited lobe both in the near field and in the far field. The coherent coupling of the independent cores will be achieved using a monolithic Self-Fourier (SF) cavity which will be directly fusion-spliced onto the output end of the multicore fiber. T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D01
Budget: 09/29/08 - 09/29/10

A world-record 750 Watt coherent fiber laser array will be demonstrated in the first year of the project. This will be achieved using the experimentally demonstrated Self-Fourier (SF) cavity, which is simple and rugged, consisting only of a Fourier lens and an output coupler. There are no complicated phase adjustors as the phase locking occurs...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-191
Budget: 11/29/07 - 05/29/08

The proposed project will demonstrate the feasibility of developing a scalable coherent high power laser array using a photonic crystal structure and a monolithic self-Fourier cavity. In the proposed Phase I effort, the optical design of the multicore photonic crystal structure will be analyzed and a monolithic Self-Fourier cavity will be design...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD05-D01
Budget: 07/28/06 - 07/28/07

The proposed project will demonstrate the feasibility of phase-locking hexagonal arrays of high power fiber lasers. Fiber lasers offer many advantages over conventional lasers including high brightness, increased modal control, and high surface areas for heat dissipation. We will take advantage of these properties to demonstrate and optimize t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01-001
Budget: 11/22/02 - 11/21/03

For directed energy applications such as the Airborne Laser (ABL) and other high energy laser systems, there still needs to be significant improvements in laser output power, brightness, stability, efficiency, as well as compactness and ruggedness. The proposed research will demonstrate the feasibility of a phase-locked array of fiber lasers u...
