Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T017
Budget: 09/11/07 - 09/09/08

The formation and use of optical filaments resulting from high-power, ultrashort pulses propagating within the atmosphere is currently an active area of research for military and commercial applications. Optical filaments can be used to ionize molecules and atoms and produced related spectral emissions. Importantly, the range at which the filame...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T017
Budget: 08/04/06 - 01/31/07

Optical filaments, formed by high intensity ultra-short laser pulses, provide high-intensity coherent white light in the atmosphere at great distances from the laser source. This high-intensity interrogation of the atmosphere yields backward directed emissions for detection from a sensor co-located with the laser system. This has clear advanta...
