Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-001
Budget: 05/01/00 - 11/01/00

Spectragen proposes to investigate the growth of alkaline earth fluoride crystals doped with uranium ions that will demonstrate improved properties over current materials for application as passive Q-switches in lasers operating at the eye-safe wavelength of 1.5 µm. These materials will constitute an enabling technology for the development of c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-199
Budget: 05/01/98 - 02/01/99

This proposal seeks to fabricate bulk crystals of KNb03 which contain periodic domain structures using electric field poling of single-domain crystals which have photolithographically defined electrode patterns. Periodically-poled KNb03 crystals have the potential for widespread application for efficient generation in the wavelength range 3 -5 ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-001
Budget: 04/17/98 - 10/16/98

This proposal seeks to grow crystals of Cr:ZnSe and Co:ZnSe which will have low optical loss, using commercially available ZnSe substrates and thermal indiffusion of the dopant ions. Currently, there are no commercial suppliers of these-crystals which are excellent candidates for direct near-IR and mid-IR tunable, compact, diode-pumpable laser s...
