Award List:

Eye-safe fiber-coupled laser pumps for high power

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,290.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer
Abstract:
Pump diode modules operating at 15xx nm for eye-safe fiber lasers with extremely high spatial and spectral brightness and good efficiency are proposed. Key elements include arrays of high power single-mode single-frequency diodes and efficient thermal management techniques.

Spectrally Narrowed Pump Diode Arrays for Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,630.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 482-0729
Abstract:
Diode-pumped Alkali Lasers (DPAL) have recently gained attention as highly-efficient lasers due to the very small energy differences between the pump and lasing levels (2% for Rb and 5% for Cs). Pump arrays with narrow spectral outputs with linewidths below 0.2 nm and which can be accurately tuned… More

Spectrally narrowed high operating temperature pumps for eye-safe laser weapons

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$728,088.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 482-0729
Abstract:
Efficient electrically pumped eye-safe lasers for battlefield applications require high brightness, spectrally stabilized fiber-coupled pump lasers emitting near 1500 nm. Existing 1500 nm pump lasers are spectrally unstabilized, have poor efficiency and brightness and require cooling. Using new… More

Ultra-Bright Diode Laser Emitters for Pumping High-Power Fiber Amplifiers

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,135.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 986-0000
Abstract:
High brightness directed energy lasers based on combining beams generated by fiber lasers and amplifiers require fiber-coupled 976 nm diode laser pumps with spatial and spectral brightness that exceed current state-of-the-art. We will meet these requirements by adapting 1060 nm MOPA designs with… More

High-Efficiency, High-Temperature Laser Diodes for Naval High-Energy Laser Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$79,683.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 986-0000
Abstract:
Recent advances in diode laser quantum-well designs have demonstrated significantly increased operating temperatures with good efficiency at wavelengths ranging from 808 to 1500 nm. Similar quantum-well designs will be adapted to 976 nm with the goal of achieving 70% wallplug efficiency at 80 C.

High Efficiency 808 nm Laser Pump Diode Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$79,115.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 986-0000
Abstract:
As part of an effort funded by HEL-JTO, we recently demonstrated advanced quantum well diode laser designs with enhanced confinement operating at 1500 nm that substantially advanced the state-of-the-art with regard to efficiency, high operating temperature and beam quality. Similar enhanced… More

Spectrally Narrowed Pump Diode Arrays for Diode Pumped Alkali Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$998,115.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Jeffrey Ungar, Chief Technology Officer – (818) 482-0729
Abstract:
Diode Pumped Alkali Vapor Lasers (DPAL) are a promising technology for high power directed energy lasers because of several favorable characteristics, notably the small quantum defect which results in very little deposition of waste heat in the lasing medium and potentially good conversion… More
