Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 01a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

New and novel passive optical taggants for remote readout are desired by the Office of Proliferation Detection of DOE for early detection of nuclear weapons development. NP Photonics proposes to make passive optical taggants made of rare-earth-doped glass nanoparticles for remote tracing and identification applications. Due to the low phonon ene...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-119
Budget: 08/16/16 - 08/16/18

NP Photonics proposes to develop a supercontinuum (SC) fiber laser with the capability to propagate a multi-spectral laser beam with > 10 Watts of time-averaged power. This program focuses on all fiber optic approach with particular emphasis on covering the mid-IR portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Mid-infrared lasers are key enabling tech...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

High energy narrow-linewidth and frequency stable laser transmitter at 780 nm is in great demand for the development of low-cost, compact, and eye-safe high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) for accurate aerosol and cloud profiling and distinguishing among different aerosol types. NP Photonics proposes to develop a 780 nm laser source capable of ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Arizona State University

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 23e
Budget: 02/22/16 - 11/21/16

High repetition rate (0.5-3 GHz) mode-locked laser source with ten-watt- level average power and with an ultra-broad wavelength tunable range of 700-850 nm is solicited by Department of Energy (DOE) to drive polarized photon-injectors for the accelerator applications. Although Ti:Sapphire laser systems have been dominant at this wavelength range...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T006
Budget: 11/03/15 - 10/25/16

Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are in high demand for a variety of practical applications including remote sensing of chemical and biological species. NP Photonics and the University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system covering 8-10 micron and capable of producing collimated few-cy...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 28a
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Improving the precision of timing and synchronization has wide impact on commercial and scientific fields. An innovative fiber laser technology based on a new glass and fiber material enables an unprecedented and cost-effective improvement in time stability and precision. Low phase noise and phase stabilized high repetition rate mode-locked lase...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-126
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain. However, these optical standards are e...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T006
Budget: 08/14/14 - 02/17/15

Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are highly demanded for a variety of practical applications. NP Photonics and University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system at 8-12 micron capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy > 100 microJoule. In this phase I program, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-126
Budget: 06/30/14 - 03/30/15

Ultra-stable and accurate frequency and timing devices such as atomic clocks are essential for modern communication, navigation, surveillance, and missile guidance systems. There are many atomic oscillators such as neutral calcium and neutral ytterbium that produce clock signal in optical domain. However, these optical standards are expensive an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-210
