Award List:

A Laser Power-Build-Up System for H Atom Ionization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,800.00
Abstract:
Hydrogen negative ions must be ionized with high efficiency for injection into proton accelerators, such as those used at DOE facilities. To achieve this ionization, neutral atoms are first prepared by laser excitation in a relatively low-strength magnetic field, which requires megawatt peak… More

A Laser Power-Build-Up System for H Atom Ionization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, Dr.
Award Amount: $756,850.00
Abstract:
Prior to injection into a proton accelerator, GeV energy Hydrogen negative ions must be ionized with good efficiency. Presently used carbon foil strippers become radioactive and produce uncontrolled beam loss which limits the performance of high intensity proton sources. Laser assisted stripping… More

Ultra-stable, Portable Fabry-Perot Cavities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Research Institution: JILA
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, President – (303) 570-1806
Award Amount: $99,989.00
RI Contact: Jun Ye
Abstract:
Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems; as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems. In optical atomic clocks, Allan Deviations<10^-15 at 1 s are needed if the readout of the atomic ensemble is to be limited by projection… More

Frequency Stabilized Laser for use in Microwave Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, President – (303) 570-1806
Award Amount: $149,447.00
Abstract:
We construct a frequency stabilized laser which will generate 10 GHz microwaves with Phase noise -100 dBC/Hz at 1 Hz, or equivalently, an optical frequency with an Allan Deviation of 8e-16 and a drift rate of<1 Hz/s. This is achieved with a silicon reference cavity (for short-term stability)… More

Frequency Stabilized Laser for use in Microwave Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, President – (303) 570-1806
Award Amount: $800,000.00
Abstract:
This project aims to further develop the technology of frequency stabilized lasers for microwave generation, laser radar and other precision measurement applications. The goal is to decrease the noise floor of the stabilized laser to ~ 6 x 10^-16 at 1 s, and improve operational robustness to allow… More

Ultra-stable, Portable Fabry-Perot Cavities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Research Institution: University of Colorado
Principal Investigator: Mark Notcutt, President – (303) 542-0427
Award Amount: $749,291.00
RI Contact: Jun Ye
Abstract:
Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems in many applications. Most importantly, they are used as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems, and some examples are down oil well sensing, laser radar and ranging in space, and… More
