Contract: N00164-04-C-6048
Award Amount: $69,917.00
 

Abstract:

Rini Technologies Inc. (RTI), proposals to demonstrate the feasibility of a new diode laser packaging concept that simultaneously features a lower thermal resistance, a simpler manufacturing process, an innovative beam shaping device, and a more compact cooling system than any diode package available today. Current programs to develop high power diode pumped solid state lasers for missile defense will benefit from a diode package with these improvements since the diode pumps are the "heart" of the laser system. This diode array concept uses an innovative optical element called a Beam Control Prism, in conjunction with a powerful thermal management technique, Evaporative Spray Cooling to produce the superior performance of the diode array. Phase I will focus on an experiment to demonstrate the abilities of the optical element and a diode array design to establish the Phase II prototype. RTI will partner with the University of Central Florida's School of Optics and diode laser manufacturers to help meet these goals
