Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-100
Budget: 07/22/10 - 04/28/11

The objective of this Phase I SBIR effort is to demonstrate high wall-plug efficiency (WPE) MWIR and LWIR Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) to enable a small, lightweight, and inexpensive battery-powered multi-spectral laser beacon for field use in identification, friend-or-foe determination, Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) operations, and s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-013
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

The goal of this SBIR effort is to develop an alternative technology for a new generation of high-performance type-II superlattice (SL) detectors that are suitable for MDA applications in the spectral region from 7 to 11 um and beyond and that out-perform detectors that are based on existing technology. Type-II systems offer potential advantage...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: State University of New York Binghamtom

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-T020
Budget: 10/12/06 - 10/12/08

Maxion Technologies, in collaboration with a research team at The State University of New York at Stony Brook, will adapt its interband cascade (IC) laser technology to create IR light-emitting-diode (LED) arrays of size 128 x 128 that emit in the 3-5-micron spectral region and meet necessary array performance requirements for IR scene projectio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-114
Budget: 09/26/06 - 09/26/08

Maxion Technologies will extend the work accomplished during our Phase I effort to develop high-performance quantum-cascade (QC) lasers in the mid-IR spectral region for Army and other DoD and DHS infrared countermeasure (IRCM) applications. The objectives are to: (1) develop and demonstrate a Band-IV (around 4.8-micron wavelength) QC laser ope...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: State University of New York Binghamtom

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-T020
Budget: 09/20/05 - 03/20/06

Maxion Technologies, in collaboration with a research team at The State University of New York at Stony Brook, proposes to adapt its interband cascade (IC) laser technology to create IR light-emitting-diode (LED) arrays that emit in the 3-5-micron spectral region and can meet necessary array performance requirements for IR scene projection. IC-b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-114
Budget: 12/10/04 - 06/10/05

We propose to develop new quantum cascade-laser (QCL) based systems useful for military platform and perimeter protection, free space communications, infrared countermeasures, and chemical sensing applications. New QCL structures will be designed and optimized, and a careful thermal analysis will be performed to determine cooler requirements an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB022-044
Budget: 11/25/03 - 03/20/06

Maxion proposes to further develop epi-side-up-mounted interband cascade (IC) lasers emitting in the mid-infrared (IR) wavelength spectral region between 3 and 5 microns. Following up on a successful Phase I effort, Maxion will design, develop,and test improved IC laser active regions that promise to lead to reductions in threshold current densi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-123
Budget: 11/21/03 - 09/30/05

The overall technical goal of this Phase II project is to develop single, broad area, interband cascade (IC) semiconductor diode lasers emitting in infrared countermeasure (IRCM) Bands II and IV (near 3.8 and 4.3 microns, respectively) that individually demonstrate sufficient power and brightness for inclusion into an all semiconductor-diode-las...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-107
Budget: 05/30/03 - 11/30/03

In this Phase I effort, Maxion will assess the feasibility of developing a high-operating-temperature, high average power, quantum cascade laser emitting in the 9-10 micron wavelength region for application in free space communications. The effort will focus on laser design and fabrication methodologies that lead to low threshold current densit...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

70109S02-II Monitoring the development and proliferation of nuclear materials and weapons is an important national objective. Several gases are emitted during the processing of nuclear materials, and their presence at trace levels essentially establishes that nuclear materials are being processed at a given location. However, presently avai...
