2.3 micron High Power Continuous Wave Diode Laser Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: RESEARCH FOUNDATION SUNY
Principal Investigator: David Westerfeld, President
Award Amount: $99,731.00
RI Contact: Katherine MacCormack
Abstract:
For phase I of this STTR, we propose the design, fabrication, and characterization of an electrically-pumped GaSb-based one-dimensional semiconductor laser array emitting at 2.3 microns. The laser array is expected to produce 5 watts of continuous-wave power from a single room-temperature 1 cm long… More

2.3 Micron High Power Continuous Wave Diode Laser Arrays

Principal Investigator: David Westerfeld, President
Award Amount: $99,894.00
Abstract:
During Phase I, we propose the design, fabrication, and test a of light emitting diode (LED) array emitting in a broad band centered around 3.5 microns. We believe the proposed Type-I array based on the GaSb material system will provide superior performance for hardware in the loop (HWIL) simulation… More

Novel Infrared (IR) Emissive Devices

Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: David Westerfeld, President
Award Amount: $711,697.00
Abstract:
Power Photonics proposes the development of a high performance two dimensional mid-IR LED array suitable for infrared scene projection applications. The array, based on our Phase I research on the same topic, will emit with wavelengths longer than 3 m, and will be able to produce flicker-free… More

Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Stony Brook University
Principal Investigator: David Westerfeld, President
Award Amount: $99,958.00
RI Contact: Susan Gasparo
Abstract:
We propose the development of an instrument system to directly measure the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices. The Phase I instrument will demonstrate the measurement of lifetimes in the range of 10 ns to 1 us. Phase II development will extend this range to 10 ns to 35 us. The… More

High Powered Laser Diodes for Pump Sources and other BMDS applications

Principal Investigator: David Westerfeld, President
Award Amount: $99,991.00
Abstract:
We propose the development of grating coupled surface emitting lasers (GCSELs) based on the GaSb material system. These lasers will operate in the continuous wave mode at temperatures well above room temperature and will offer higher power and efficiency as compared to any current technology. The… More

Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II

Award Amount: $748,514.00
RI Contact: Dimitri Donetsky
Abstract:
We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated.… More
