Title: A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX11CI16P
Award Amount: $99,984.00
 

Abstract:

The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component will withstand high optical power and have a significantly higher rf modulation figure-of-merit (FOM) relative to lithium niobate.
