Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop a method for the production of polycrystalline YAG laser gain media containing gradients of dopant in either linear or radial directions within the part. Such parts offer performance improvements for both output power and beam quality in diode pumped laser systems ma...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-115
Budget: 10/18/11 - 04/17/12

There is a need for an infrared window material that can replace single crystal sapphire in airborne applications. In order to do so, the alternate must possess optical transmission, optical scatter, mechanical strength, and mechanical stiffness comparable to sapphire while costing significantly less than sapphire. Nanocerox proposes to utilize ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-076
Budget: 05/25/10 - 05/01/12

Rare earth sesquioxide transparent ceramics doped with ytterbium are being developed for use in thin disk lasers due to their favorable thermal and optical properties. Nanocrystalline oxide powders are produced using liquid feed flame spray pyrolysis. Particular emphasis is placed on production of high purity powders that can be consolidated t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-076
Budget: 02/27/09 - 11/27/09

This program seeks to develop ytterbium doped rare earth sesquioxides including yttria, scandia, lutetia, and gadolinia-based oxides as laser gain media for use in high power thin disk lasers. The increased thermal conductivity, increased absorption cross section at pump wavelengths, small quantum defect in Yb lasing systems, and high performan...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-118
Budget: 04/25/08 - 02/25/11

Nanocerox proposes to use our custom formulated, high purity yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) nanopowder for the production of YAG windows 6 by 12 by 10 mm thick with theoretical transmission from visible to 5µm wavelengths to demonstrate their utility in IR transparent material applications. YAG is a high strength ceramic which, with proper pro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-118
Budget: 04/30/07 - 05/30/08

Nanocerox proposes to use our custom formulated, high purity yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) nanopowder for the production of YAG plates (100 mm diameter and 6 mm thick) with 82-84% transmission to demonstrate their utility as IR transparent windows. YAG is a high strength ceramic which, with proper processing, can achieve the optical quality req...
