Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Aqwest proposes to develop a novel, compact and rugged high-peak power erbium (Er) laser amplifier at 1.5 m to for NASA remote sensing trasmitter. The project will take advantage our novel and highly successful edge-pumped disk laser (EPDL) multi-passed amplifier we are developing for the US Army, Navy, and the Department of Energy (DOE) applica...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/10/16

Aqwest proposes to develop a novel, compact and rugged high-peak power blue laser in the 0.45-0.49 m range. The innovative blue laser is based on a frequency-quadrupling of 1.9-μm laser output from ceramic Tm:Lu2O3, a novel high-performance solid-state laser (SSL) material that is new becoming commercially available. The project will adap...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

IFE offers to tap almost unlimited sources of inexpensive energy. This new energy source would free the U.S. from the dependence on hydrocarbon fuels, the use of which produces green-house gases (GHG). The proposed EPDL laser driver would greatly advance the ICF maturity and its transition to commercial IFE for generation of electricity. Availab...
