Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N131-017
Budget: 06/05/13 - 12/05/13

LightSmyth is a US based manufacturer of high power high efficiency polarization insensitive diffraction grating using unique, cost-efficient and high fidelity manufacturing technology. Gratings are etched into fused silica substrate and contain no organics or polymers. They may be as large as 150 mm in diameter with clear aperture up to 135 mm....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-173
Budget: 01/13/11 - 10/17/11

Use of projection photolithography allows for fabrication of high fidelity diffraction gratings with individual control on location and shape of each groove using modern semiconductor tools and powerful computer-based simulation and CAD software. The method yields master-grade highly efficient diffraction gratings with high batch-to batch repro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Remote chemical analysis via spectroscopy is an important tool in the arsenal or Earth and Planetary Science. Grating technology, which is the centerpiece of most modern spectroscopy systems, has not change significantly in the last 60 years since introduction of holographic gratings. Recently LightSmyth introduced new technology for design and ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-2
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Diffraction gratings are powerful tools for the spectral analysis of electromagnetic radiation. Properties of gratings are determined by available fabrication means ? which have not changed substantially in 50 years. Modern photolithography, now approaching nanometer resolution, may revolutionize the way many gratings are made and, through gre...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

There is a need for lightweight high-density (4000+ lines/mm) novel diffraction grating elements in modern telescopes to advance EUV and X-ray astrophysics. Current grating technologies (ruling and holographic beam interference) do not provide optimal solution for all grating requirements. In response to NASA request, we propose to apply state...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB031-020
Budget: 02/02/05 - 04/30/07

A phase II SBIR program encompassing the development of advanced multiplexers for custom coarse WDM communication systems based on holographic Bragg reflectors (HBRs), a building block component of integrated holographics, is proposed. Integrated holographics harnesses the nanofabrication capability of state-of-the-art DUV photolithographic too...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-011
Budget: 06/24/04 - 06/23/06

Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic st...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB031-020
Budget: 06/12/03 - 02/16/04

This phase I SBIR proposal comprises a feasibility study of an advanced new class of optical devices that promise to provide a dramatic expansion of practical optical function in areas such spectral filtering and optical processing. Many areas of optical data transport will benefit from robust, low-cost, yet high performance devices delivering ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-011
Budget: 05/07/02 - 11/06/02

By combining fabrication methods perfected in the semiconductor industry with device concepts derived from optical holography, LightSmyth Technologies intends to develop a new family of fully integrated, robust, optical devices uniquely suited to high performance spectral filtering, spectral target recognition, optical multiplexing, temporal cor...
