Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 26a
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Advanced high energy electron accelerators based upon laser plasma acceleration rely on using capillary discharges for both forming the plasma and providing a means for guiding the intense laser beam over distances much longer than the Rayleigh range. Scaling these devices to high energy levels requires using long capillary discharges with relat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

High temperature superconductors are becoming increasingly more viable candidates for plasma fusion, high-energy accelerators, and industrial/medical applications. Due to defects within the high temperature superconducting materials during the manufacturing and assembly process, quenching is still an important problem. Quench detection needs to ...

Topic: 28 I-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA) has demonstrated the ability to accelerate electrons in a plasma with gradients & gt;30 GeV/m where a capillary discharge is used as the plasma source. The capillary discharge has a parabolic plasma density profile that is able to guide the focused laser beam used to drive the LWFA process. Upcoming LWFA exp...

Topic: SB082-003
Budget: 08/31/11 - 03/31/13

An innovative prototype tunable CO2 laser system with subnanosecond pulse duration and high peak power will be built and delivered for experiments on double-resonance remote sensing of gaseous chemical agents being conducted at the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC). Such a laser is critical for the...

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Narrowband Terahertz Imager for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer Detection Terahertz (THz) radiation is nonionizing and safe for probing human tissue. Unlike ultrasound, THz light is capable of submillimeter resolution and, unlike other imaging techniques, THz light is not affected by light scattering. This unique cap...

Budget: 03/31/09 - 12/10/09

A CO2 laser with subnanosecond pulse duration and high pulse energy will be developed for double-resonance remote sensing lidar applications. An innovative technique for generating the ultrashort laser pulses will be utilized. A detailed conceptual design will be made during Phase I and a prototype laser will be fabricated and tested during Ph...

Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Supersonic gas jet nozzles, used to generate the plasma part of a laser wakefield acceleration (LWFA) system, would enable the development of high-gradient advanced electron accelerators. However, the nozzle requires sharp boundaries between the jet stream and the surrounding vacuum. Such sharp boundaries are possible if the gas flows supersonic...

Plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) is a promising new acceleration technique that can accelerate charged particles to very high energies using plasma waves (wakefields) generated by a relativistic electron bunch. By using a concept called a plasma afterburner, PWFA has the potential of doubling the energy of the electrons from a linear acceler...
