Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 97-2
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 97-2
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-105
Budget: 11/15/96 - 02/14/99

In this Phase II SBIR, SDL proposes to develop a rugged, low-cost, compact, and efficient package for fiber-coupling of novel high-power semiconductor laser diodes to single-mode optical fibers. By exploiting the unique optical properties of a new 1 w+ diffraction-limited laser, it is possible to simultaneously realize low piece parts cost, sim...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB942-102
Budget: 09/20/96 - 09/20/98

SDL proposes to develop a new generation of sources for wavelength division multiplexed (WDM ) optical communications. The sources consist of arrays of high-power distributed feedback (DFB) lasers that are efficiently coupled on a single chip to one port for single-mode optical fiber coupling. The proposed approach will aviod the serious pitfa...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO96-011
Budget: 07/15/96 - 01/15/97

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ARPA93-058
Budget: 06/04/96 - 12/04/97

The objective of the combined Phase I/Phase II research program is to develop a method of manufacturing low-cost laser diode products in which efficient, high-brightness laser coupling is achieved using integrated optical components formed on a silicon substrate. In Phase I of this program, the first successful application of a new process to f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N93-007
Budget: 05/30/96 - 05/29/96

SDL proposes to develop a compact blue laser source with single spatial-mode output power exceeding 10 mW at a wavelength near 420-490 nm. In phase I, SDL demonstrated the feasiblity of compact blue laser source using frequency conversion of high power laser diodes. The proposed blue laser source has enormous advantages over existing sour...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO96-014
Budget: 05/28/96 - 11/28/96

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: DARPA93-002
Budget: 05/16/96 - 05/30/97

SDL proposes to develop laser diode pumped optical amplifier modules at 1.3 um wavelength for application to telecommunication systems. While laboratory demonstrations have established the feasibility of using Pr-doped ZBLAN fiber for 1.3 um wavelength amplifiers, the lack of a suitable laser diode pump source has prevented the commercializatio...
