DEVELOPMENT OF PROCEDURES FOR HERMETIC COATING OF OPTICAL FIBER USING ION DEPOSITION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $284,000.00
Abstract:
Hermetic protection of optical fiber is required for many communications applications due to the degrading effects of moisture on the long term strength of glass. the primary objective of this program is to evaluate various materials for plasma deposition as an effective technique for… More

STUDY OF PREPARATION TECHNIQUES OR LARGE BULK FLUORIDE COMPONENTS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $235,000.00
Abstract:
Bulk glass components prepared from fluoride glasses such aswindows, lenses and domes exhibit broad band low loss transmission from near uv to mid ir wavelengths. the goals of the program are to develop a reproduceable process for the preparation of high purity fluoride glasses in bulk form. an… More

IDENTIFICATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard driver
Award Amount: $53,625.00
Abstract:
A simple two wavelength remote fiber optic spectrometer will be developed for the mid infrared detection of organophosphate chemical agents. optical fiber will be fabricated from fluoride glasses which are being developed for long range communication. the subject of suitable light sources and… More

LONG LENGTH FLUORIDE OPTICAL FIBER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I

LONG LENGTH FLUORIDE OPTICAL FIBER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Peter C Schultz
Award Amount: $200,000.00
Abstract:
This proposal is addressing the problems of drawing defect-free lengths of fluoride fiber (> 500 m) with good strength and mechanical properties. spectran has extensive experience in bulk hmfg and has recently established a fiber draw facility for flouride fiber. we propose to use the preform… More

OPTICALLY ADDRESSED MODULATOR MATERIALS

Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Lubos vacha
Award Amount: $67,395.00
Abstract:
Fluoride materials have been identified as promising candidates for high-power optical signal processing applications, especially for those in which second harmonic generation (shg) figures in the electronic transitions leading to nonlinearity in the optical susceptibility. they have been given this… More

NONLINEAR MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT FOR 0.8 AND 1.315 MICRONS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr Dipak R Biswas
Award Amount: $33,872.00
Abstract:
Stimulated photon echoes have been recognized as means by which pulsed coherent optical information can be stored and retrieved using four-wavemixing geometries. stimulated echoes can be temporarily and spatially separated using counter-propagating excitation geometries, suggesting that backward… More
