Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98T004
Budget: 08/30/99 - 08/30/01

We propose to radically alter the method used for manufacturing optical fiber gratings. By illuminating a Ge-doped silicate glass fiber with near-UV light at 330 nm, where the polymer jacket of the fiber is transparent, we can fabricate fiber gratings without having to strip and recoat the fiber. We will investigate a new technique that also eli...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98T001
Budget: 08/06/98 - 02/05/99

We propose to develop technology for a new generation of ultra-compact, low-cost fiber sensors for detecting gamma- and x-rays. Long-period gratings embedded in a fiber will couple light between the fiber core and a special sensitized fiber cladding. We will investigate the most advantageous grating geometries for such sensors. The fundamental d...
