Award List:

Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Research Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Principal Investigator: Alan Lee, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,490.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
The NASA Constellation program has a need to non-destructively test (NDT) non-metallic materials (foams, Shuttle Tile, Avcoat, etc) for defects such as delaminations and voids. While imaging systems at terahertz frequencies (0.3 to 3 THz) have been demonstrated for 2D imaging of similar materials,… More

Terahertz Quantum Cascade Laser Based 3D Imaging

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Research Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Principal Investigator: Alan Lee, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $600,000.00
RI Contact: Michael Corcoran
Abstract:
LongWave Photonics proposes a terahertz quantum-cascade laser based swept-source optical coherence tomography (THz SS-OCT) system for single-sided, 3D, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of non-conductive materials. The THz SS-OCT system uses a frequency tunable QCL array to generate an… More

SBIR Phase I: Tunable Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers for Spectroscopy

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alan Lee
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will focus on the demonstration of a frequency tunable quantum cascade laser (QCL) operating at terahertz frequencies (1-10 THz) for applications including spectroscopy and non-destructive imaging. This novel source is based on external… More
