Award List:

A LIQUID CRYSTAL WAVEPLATE TECHNIQUE FOR WAVELENGTH TUNING OF NARROWBAND OPTICAL FILTERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Tom Baur
Award Amount: $49,990.00
Abstract:
We propose to investigate wavelength tuning of narrow bandwidth optical filters using nematic liquid crystal waveplates with a retardance that is electrically tunable. these tunable liquid crystal waveplates or retarders have distinct advantages over present technologies in that they permit… More

Polarization Insensitive Liquid Crystal Spatial Light Modulator for Adaptive Optics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Robert V. Morrison
Award Amount: $715,699.00
Abstract:
A polarization insensitive liquid crystal spatial light modulator is proposed as an alternative technology for currently deployed adaptive optic systems. Potential benefits of this approach include cost savings, weight reduction, lower power requirements, and improved performance. System response… More

Optical Filter for Undersea Blue-Green Laser Communication

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Tom Baur, Board Chairman
Award Amount: $70,480.00
Abstract:
We propose to build and test two types of polarization interference filter stages to achieve the goal of a ninety-degree full cone angle, field of view. These filter stages will be of different designs that both have the potential to meet this goal. They will have a 45 millimeter diameter clear… More

Optical Filter for Undersea Blue-Green Laser Communication

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Tom Baur, Chairman of the Board
Award Amount: $599,578.00
Abstract:
We propose to build a seven-filter array of wavelength selectable wide field Lyot filters. Each filter will have a hexagonal aperture of 100 mm in the largest dimension and the total clear aperture of the array will exceed 390 cm^2. All filters will have a passband full width at half maximum of… More

STTR Phase I: Design, Fabrication and Characterization of Ferroelectric Nanoparticle Doped Liquid Crystal/Polymer Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Research Institution: University of Colorado at Colorado Springs
Principal Investigator: Robert A. Ramsey, PhD
Award Amount: $149,962.00
RI Contact: Anatoliy Glushchenko
Abstract:
This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will address the critical need for low driving voltage, adaptive materials providing large phase retardation (for ultraviolet, visible, and infrared wavelengths) within a sub-millisecond time frame. Two technologically innovative tasks will be… More
