Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S1.03
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Alan Lee

NASA has a need for airborne or space-based observatories and remote sensors in order to penetrate the opaque atmosphere between 1 and 10 THz. For observations>2 THz, technologically mature microwave sources typically have microwatt power levels which are insufficient to act as LOs for a heterodyne receiver. LongWave Photonics is proposing to ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Alan Lee

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate a prototype frequency tunable quantum cascade laser (TQCL) operating at terahertz frequencies (2-5 THz) for applications including gas spectroscopy and non-destructive imaging. This novel source is based on distributed feedback (DFB) terahertz QCL with a lateral wav...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12
PI: Alan Lee

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will focus on the demonstration of a frequency tunable quantum cascade laser (QCL) operating at terahertz frequencies (1-10 THz) for applications including spectroscopy and non-destructive imaging. This novel source is based on external micropositioning driver for actuated the tuning...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-T7.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11
PI: Alan Lee

LongWave Photonics proposes a terahertz quantum-cascade laser based swept-source optical coherence tomography (THz SS-OCT) system for single-sided, 3D, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of non-conductive materials. The THz SS-OCT system uses a frequency tunable QCL array to generate an interferometric signal between a reference mirror, and a samp...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T7
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10
PI: Alan Lee

The NASA Constellation program has a need to non-destructively test (NDT) non-metallic materials (foams, Shuttle Tile, Avcoat, etc) for defects such as delaminations and voids. While imaging systems at terahertz frequencies (0.3 to 3 THz) have been demonstrated for 2D imaging of similar materials, they have not yet demonstrate full 3D volumetri...
