Award List:

No-Vibration Agile Cryogenic Optical Refrigerator

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Richard Epstein, Dr. – 505-310-1224
Abstract:
Optical refrigeration is currently the only all-solid-state cryocooling technology that has been demonstrated. Optical cryocoolers are devices that use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an… More

Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,994.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Richard Epstein, Chief Executive Officer – (505) 310-1224
Research Institution:
University of New Mexico
RI Contact:
Michael D. Schwantes
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The demonstration of 155 Kelvin refrigeration by optical cooling performed by the co-PIs of this proposal is a first step toward revolutionizing Air Force cryogenic systems. The stated focus of this STTR solicitation is"developing the concepts of a solid-state optical cryocooler that… More

Cryogenic Optical Refrigeration for Space Applications

2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,986.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Richard Epstein, CEO – (505) 310-1224
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes… More

Cryogenic Optical Refrigeration for Space Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$749,904.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Richard Epstein, CEO – (505) 310-1224
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: If awarded a SBIR Phase II contract, ThermoDynamic Films, LLC, together with the University of New Mexico (UNM) will build a first-generation optical cryocooler. They will add a calibrated load to the device and characterize its efficiency and its cooling speed. Solid-state cryocoolers,… More
