Title: An Integrated Software Package for the Design and Simulation of Waveguides Fabricated from Omnidirectionally Reflective Composite Dielectric Materials
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-05-C-0038
Award Amount: $358,154.00
 

Abstract:

An OmniGuide fiber is a hollow-core fiber which employs a dielectric omnidirectional mirror to keep light confined to its core. These novel fibers are ideally suited for ultra-low loss optical transmission and for flexible delivery of high power lasers. Prior to and during our Phase I effort, we have developed a wide range of tools to simulate the performance of OmniGuide fibers and related structures. This Phase II proposal summarizes our software tool development and sets forth a program to develop a user-friendly, comprehensive, and integrated software package incorporating these tools, suitable for commercialization.
