Award List:

Optical Limiters Without Focal Planes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Salah Khodja, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,917.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop light weight optical limiters without focusing lens that provides sufficient attenuation, optical limiting >=104, at incident radiation levels that would otherwise cause retinal injury. At the same time it maintains a ground state transmittance of 50%. These optical limiters… More

Nonlinear Plasmonic Devices

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Salah Khodja, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $98,993.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop ultra compact nonlinear plasmonic devices for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to… More

Plasmonic Sensor Array

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Stanford University
Principal Investigator: Salah Khodja, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Mark Brongersma
Abstract:
The goal of this program is to develop devices that can detect small electric fields over large frequency ranges while being compact and power efficient. We propose an electro-optic resonant plasmon that enhances the electro-optic phase shift in a small volume (

Development of an EO/IR Common Aperture Modular Multifunction Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I

Research Institution: Stanford University
Principal Investigator: Salah Khodja, Senior Scientist – (858) 663-0081
Award Amount: $149,983.00
RI Contact: Mark Brongersma
Abstract:
The goal of this program is to develop and fabricate an ultra-low Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) integrated electro-optic beam-steering technology that utilizes ultra-fast electro-optic active plasmonic waveguide arrays to achieve very wide scanning angle with diffraction limited beam quality. We… More

Energy Reducing, Ruggedized, Solar Lighting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
