High-Power High-Linearity High-Speed Photodetection Modules

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Greg Fish, VP of Research and Development
Award Amount: $98,826.00
Abstract:
Optical links are very attractive for application in antenna systems due to their low loss, lightweight flexible cabling, immunity to electromagnetic interference, broad bandwidth, and overall ability to remote antennas over distances not possible with conventional electronic approaches. The main… More

Integrated Low Jitter Mode Locked Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Alexander Fang, CEO – (805) 683-0425
Award Amount: $746,243.00
Abstract:
Mode Locked Lasers (MLLs), will likely be extremely useful for many military applications because of the low timing jitter (<100 fs), narrow pulse width (<50 fs), and high peak pulse intensity of MLLs. Important military applications that benefit from MLLs include high ENOB Analog to Digital… More
