Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project focuses on developing methods to improve the power and performance of an exciting new diode-pumped solid-state laser crystal. Laser crystals are superior to any other candidate material in the emerging and rapidly developing field of ultrafast lasers by their ability to generate hi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-079
Budget: 04/07/04 - 10/07/04

Single crystals of lithium niobate can be used to construct a very simple passive agile filter, in which an incoming beam interferes with its own back-reflection to set up a diffraction grating that results in energy transfer and depletion of the transmitted power. The virtue of such an approach is that it can respond to incident coherent radia...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project focuses on developing methods to improve the power and performance of an exciting new diode-pumped solid-state laser crystal.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA02-021
Budget: 12/20/02 - 06/20/03

The primary impediment to large deployment of GaN has been the lack of suitable substrates on which to grow and fabricate optimum structures and devices. While GaN films are commonly grown on sapphire or silicon carbide substrates, the lattice mismatch of these materials with GaN results in a large number of defects and dislocations. Many of th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-021
Budget: 04/22/02 - 05/02/03

This proposed research effort program will enable new sources of laser radiation from the near uv through the mid-IR. This will be accomplished by growth and characterization of large high-quality stoichiometric lithium tantalate crystals and demonstration of the superior performance of these crystals in nonlinear optical frequency conversion o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the potential of new sources of laser radiation based on ytterbium (Yb) doped stoichiometric lithium niobate (SLN) crystals. The Yb-doped SLN crystal will serve as both the laser and nonlinear frequency converter to enable the production of a broad range of waveleng...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-003
Budget: 05/19/00 - 11/01/00

We propose a broadly-tunable mid-IR laser based on an efficient, electronically tunable frequency conversion technique. This Phase I research effort will investigate the development of an electro-optically tuned, periodically poled optical parametric oscillator. Distingushing features of the proposed laser system include all solid state constr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-001
Budget: 04/20/00 - 10/20/00

This Phase I research effort will characterize four nonlinear optical materials with the potential for applications in novel frequency conversion strategies in order to generate UV-VUV laser radiation via cascaded second harmonic. Distinguishing features of the proposed UV laser system include all solid state construction, high conversion effic...
