Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Low Cost High Quality Nonlinear Optical Crystals for Laser Light Sources for Miniature Projectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Gisele Maxwell, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of growing high-quality fibers of periodically poled Mg-doped LiNbO3 for visible light generation, by a modified version of the laser heated pedestal growth (LHPG) method. Other methods used to grow these… More

SBIR Phase I:Potassium Lithium Niobate grown by Modified Laser Heated Pedestal Growth technique for blue and UV laser applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Gisele Maxwell, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the technical feasibility of growing potassium lithium niobate (KLN) frequency doubling crystals for blue and ultraviolet (UV) laser applications. The incorporation of frequency-doubling crystals composed of KLN, a… More

SBIR Phase II:Low Cost High Quality Nonlinear Optical Crystals for Laser Light Sources for Miniature Projectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Gisele Maxwell
Award Amount: $493,883.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate how to reduce the cost of manufacturing magnesium-doped lithium niobate (Mg:LiNbO3) crystals by more than an order of magnitude. Frequency-doubling crystals, such as Mg:LiNbO3 can convert 1064-nm light from an infrared… More

SBIR Phase I: Coilable Single Crystal Fibers of Doped YAG for High Power Laser Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Gisele Maxwell
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the technical feasibility of the growth of coilable single-crystal fibers of doped yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) of sufficient quality to improve the performance of high-power fiber lasers. Single crystal fibers are an… More
