Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H9.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

In future ground-based receivers for deep-space optical communications with spacecraft, aperture diameters of the order of 10 meters are required even with the most sensitive available detectors. Directly applying the technology of 10 meter class ground-based telescopes is cost prohibitive. Also, conventional astronomical telescopes are not comp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S2.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Using small aperture telescopes for detecting exoplanets could have a significant impact on astronomy and other imaging and space communication systems. In this new generation of smaller, lighter and more affordable coronagraph systems, the starlight is rejected with the aid of phase-based transparent masks capable of transmitting planetary ligh...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 10-1-S2.02
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Diffractive waveplates are optical components made of thin films of anisotropic materials by modulating their optical axis orientation in the plane of the waveplate. The family of diffractive waveplates wherein this modulation is axially symmetricÂ? vector vortex waveplates (VVWs) Â? impart a spiral phase modulation at a light beam propagated th...
