Award Amount: $69,971.00
 

Abstract:

The primary goal of the proposed Phase I SBIR effort is to investigate various schemes for implementing a built-in test circuit using integrated optoelectronic modules. The circuit will be implemented using OptiComp's (OCC) advanced optoelectronic moduleswhich monolithically integrate VCSELs, detectors, and interconnecting waveguides. Using these unique optoelectronic circuits, advanced built-in test capabilities are enabled which could significantly enhance optical networks used in military/aerospaceapplications. The built-in test capabilities will detect transmitter, receiver, and cable failures in the high-performance networks implemented with these modules. OCC occupies a 7,000 square foot facility which includes a full service, backendsemiconductor fabrication fabrication cleanroom and optoelectronic device integration laboratory, an optoelectronic testing area, and an MBE based crystal growth facility. OCC's design center includes optoelectronic based modeling software for VCSELs andwaveguide structures, as well as full EDA schematic capture and mask layout.
