Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-137
Budget: 12/05/08 - 06/05/09

This SBIR proposal presents two innovative high energy fiber laser component technologies that will significantly advance high power all-fiber eye-safe fiber lasers without causing damage to the fiber. The first one is a coherent all-fiber beam combiner and the second one is an efficient fiber side-pumping technique without using free space opt...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is aimed for manufacturing high-density phase-locked fiber laser arrays that can be made with extremely high precision and

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-020
Budget: 05/13/04 - 11/13/04

This small business innovation research is aimed to generate tens of mJ pulse energy in a pulse width of 12 mJ pulse energy in a width of

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-005
Budget: 02/24/03 - 02/24/05

This Phase II-SBIR proposal is directed toward developing an affordable high-energy fiber laser for the US Army Arsenal for igniting large caliber guns. The proposed laser is a diode-pumped, double-clad, Yb-doped multicore fiber array arranged in two isometric rings, which are embedded in a very large cladding having a very large NA, so that a ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-005
Budget: 05/29/02 - 09/02/04

This Phase II SBIR Proposal presents detailed description of a KW fiber laser, which is comprised of three key enabling components: (1) a properly configured phase locked fiber laser array with 19 Yb-doped cores, presently being developed under an on-going AF Phase II SBIR, (2) low-cost, pigtailed diode laser pumps, that have been selected and c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-005
Budget: 03/07/02 - 01/12/03

Very high power can be obtained by combining a large number of diode laser bars, but unfortunately the combined output consists of a very low-brightness beam with very large beam divergence, therefore, it is unsuitable for igniting large caliber guns. PC Photonics is proposing a diode-pumped multicore fiber laser array, which is capable of deli...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-005
Budget: 04/06/01 - 03/29/02

Three key enabling components are critically needed for advancing high power fiber lasers. They are the double clad, multicore fibers; high brightness diode laser pumps; and optical coupling between the pump and the fiber. This proposal is focused on the most neglected component, the coupling between the pump and fiber laser. Material dam...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-002
Budget: 03/15/01 - 03/25/03

The double-clad multicore fiber laser has proven to be the most efficient, optically-pumped laser. In Phase I, we have demonstated that phase-locking occurs spontaneously among a group of closely packed single mode fiber lasers configured isometrically in a common cladding. This result suggests that, by using our unique power combining techniq...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2001
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is aimed at achieving the first ever 350W (cw) output power in a high brightness and diffraction-limited laser beam from a multicore phase-locked fiber laser array. Under Phase I, the feasibility of the unique power combining concept has been demonstrated by phase-locking a group of...
