Optimized And Low Cost Praseodymim-doped Fluoride Fiber Optical

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven Bastien, Phd
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP OPTIMIZED, HIGH PERFORMANCE AND LOW COST FIBER OPTICAL AMPLIFIERS FOR USE IN THE 1300 NM SIGNAL WAVELENGTH. WE PLAN TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF OUR APPROACH BY CARRYING OUT MEASUREMENTS IN AN ASSEMBLED LABORATORY SET-UP. WE WILL COMPARE THESE RESULTS WITH OUR THEORETICAL… More

THULIUM DOPED FLUORIDE FIBER AMPLIFIER FOR USE IN THE 800NM SIGNAL BAND

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven Bastien Phd
Award Amount: $59,988.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop an optimized, high performance and low-cost fiber optical amlifier for use in the 800 nm signal wavelength band. The rare-earth dopant will be thulium (Tm) and the host fiber composition will be a heavy metal fluoride glass (ZBLAN). This amplifier, labeled TDFFOA, or a… More

ERBIUM-TERBIUM CO-DOPED FLUORIDE FIBER OPTICAL AMPLIFIER OPERATING IN 850NM SIGNAL BAND

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien, Phd
Award Amount: $59,985.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop for the first time, a high performance, low noise amplifier in the 850 nm signal band using a Erbium-Terbium co-doped active fiber. Erbium-Terbium co-doped fiber optical amplifiers (ETCFOA) will be key components for short haul communication systems in the first… More

Compact Upconversion Blue Fiber Laser

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien
Award Amount: $79,993.00
Abstract:
We are proposing to develop a novel compact blue fiber laser which overcomes the limitations of currently available lasers. These lasers offer significant advantages over the solid-state and gas lasers that are presently available. Fiber lasers are compact, efficient, widely tunable, and deliver… More

Tunable 1 Micron Fiber Laser

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien, Phd
Award Amount: $59,959.00

Single Longitudinal Mode Distributed Feedback Fiber Optics Laser

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien, Ph.d
Award Amount: $59,997.00

Single Longitudinal Mode Distributed Feedback Fiber Optics Laser

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien, Ph.d
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
A true single longitudinal mode distributed feedback (DFB) fiber laser will be developed. The first and only, a preliminary demonstration of this laser has just been published, but it is not truly single frequency. We shall develop and commercialize the world's first DFB fiber laser with Bragg… More

Tunable 1 Micron Fiber Laser

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Steven P. Bastien, Phd
Award Amount: $900,000.00
Abstract:
In this Phase I study, we will demonstrate high power, continuous wave (CW) single spatial mode laser action at the 1 um wavelength. There are two innovative aspects in our proposal: the incorporation of commercially available very high power, not necessarily single mode, semiconductor laser diodes… More
