20 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 99-1
Budget: 01/01/99 - 12/31/99

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 09/02/98 - 03/01/99

CdSe, a wide bandgap semiconductor, combining high resistivity, good carrier trans-port properties, and large average Z number is ideal for use as a room-temperature x-ray and y-ray detector. In the x-ray regime, the large bandgap (-1.7 eV) of GdSe eliminates the need to cool the crystal in order to reduce thermal noise. Si and Ge detectors must...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-150
Budget: 06/22/98 - 02/22/98

Many nonlinear optics (NLO) applications are frustrated by lack of suitable crystals. Chromium-doped Cadmium Selenide (Cr2+:CdSe) is an example of a laser host which is also the NLO crystal. This crystal is not available in suitable size or quality. However, it is potentially a very useful material for laser systems. Cr2+:CdSe, diode-pumped ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

AgGa(1-x)InsSe2 is a unique nonlinear crystal suitable for a wide range of 3-wave mixing applications, including co2 laser NCPM SHG and THG. It combines strong nonlinear coupling with phase-matching across a wide (0.8-13um) transmission range. These properties also provide the basis for near-IR pumped OPO and DFG systems generating tunable la...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 97-1
Budget: 01/01/97 - 12/31/97

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF94-167
Budget: 06/08/94 - 12/08/94

Many scientific and commercial applications of nonlinear optics are frustrated by the lack of suitable nonlinear optical (NLO) crystals. It may be possible to significantly change this situation by altering the basic approach from conventional phase matching to quasi-phase-matching (QPM). QPM involves alternating regions of nonlinear material, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO94-003
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

QPM involves alternating regions of nonlinear material, such that efficient 3-wave mixing is achieved without conventional phase matching. If a practical implementation of QPM were developed, then harmonic generation (SHG/THG) from CO(2) laser radiation and mid-infrared (mid-IR) pumped optical parametric oscillators and amplifiers (OPOs/OPAs) ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA89-003
Budget: 09/20/91 - 09/20/93

This Phase II program would continue the growth and testing of the nonlinear optical material beta-barium borate. During Phase I, improvements were made in crystal size, yield, and quality using a modified top-seeded flux growth method. Average boule size increased. Single crystal boule yield, average boule mass and the percentage of inclusion ...
