Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T006
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Yanbo Bai

Surface emitting semiconductor lasers eliminate the necessity for facet cleaving and allow for wafer scale testing, which increase the manufacturing yield and reduces the cost. However, in the mid-infrared, surface emitting semiconductor lasers are significantly underdeveloped compared to edge emitting devices. The proposed STTR Phase II researc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-093
Budget: 09/30/14 - 03/30/15

The use of directed energy at long distances, such as for aircraft defense, requires a high power (>100 W) light source within the mid-infrared spectral region (3-5 micron). Power scaling of individual quantum cascade lasers using 1-D and 2-D arrays seems to be a straightforward approach. However, this process is critically dependent on individu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S1.03
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

High performance LWIR detectors are highly needed. In order to image from long distance, it is important that imagers have high sensitivity, high resolution, and very low dark currents. This leads to technical goals of having low noise, low dark current in small size pixels in large arrays. While saturated performance levels of traditional syste...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-032
Budget: 09/19/13 - 05/31/14

Infrared countermeasure and standoff chemical detection applications require a light source with high power output, good beam quality, and a wide tuning range. There are a limited number of viable mid-infrared (3-5 micron wavelength) solutions that can provide these features in a compact and power scalable architecture. In this proposal, a singl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-019
Budget: 05/14/13 - 05/16/15

High performance infrared detectors in the LWIR regime are highly needed in a number of missile defense missions. In order to image targets from long distance, it is important that imagers have high sensitivity and high resolution. This leads to technical goals of having low noise, low dark current in small size pixels in large arrays. While sat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-S1.03
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This proposal describes development of a new type of quantum-cascade laser for use as a local oscillator at frequencies above 2 THz. The THz source described is a single chip solution that operates at room temperature. In addition, a mechanism for wide tuning (2-4.7 THz) is described that requires no moving parts.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA10-012
Budget: 10/16/12 - 09/15/14

Recent development of Antimonide-based Type-II superlattice infrared detectors has resulted in significant breakthroughs in terms of device performance as well as FPA imaging quality. Improvement in material quality and processing technique, as well as evolutionary modifications in device architecture have demonstrated the advantages of the mate...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-029
Budget: 10/09/12 - 10/09/14
PI: Yanbo Bai

Existing ultraviolet laser diodes with wavelengths much shorter than 365 nm suffer from poor performance. This is partially due to limited research in this area, but a large part is also due to material and processing issues unique to deep UV lasers. New approaches to achieving 340 nm III-Nitride lasers are needed to meet the Navy s ambitious go...
