Award List:

High-Speed Electronically Tunable Fiber Optic Wavelength Filter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: UCSB
Principal Investigator: Greg Fish, VP of Research and Develo – (805) 683-0425
Award Amount: $79,936.00
RI Contact: Cara Egan-Williams
Aurrion will demonstrate a high-speed, electronically tunable wavelength filter using integrated silicon photonics. This tunable filter will enable selection of any channel in a Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) network across the full ITU C-band in less than 1 microsecond and be usable in an… More

Integrated 100Gb/s Transmitter Chips

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Greg Fish, Dr. – 805-683-0425
Award Amount: $149,992.00
Bandwidth needs in the DOE national backbone have been increasing by 10x every 4 years for the past three decades with terabit links expected by 2014. Such links will likely be based on emerging coherent technologies, which use advanced multilevel modulation formats (phase and polarization) and… More

Integrated Optical Thresholder Function for Use in Optical Analog to Digital Converters (OADCs)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Greg Fish, VP of Research – (805) 683-0425
Award Amount: $149,676.00
ABSTRACT: Aurrion and Lockheed Martin will create an optical thresholding component that can be monolithically integrated in a silicon-substrate-based photonic integrated circuit (PIC) platform. The ultimate goal is to realize PICs that can contain these nonlinear components in the same chip with… More

Integrated 100 Gb/s Transmitter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Gregory Fish, Dr.
Award Amount: $998,791.00
The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate an integrated tunable transmitter chip which will overcome size and power roadblocks for transceivers at 100 Gb/s datarates and enable the bandwidth of Department of Energy (DOE) operated networks to continue to increase at the historic rate of 10x… More


Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Anand Ramaswamy, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,772.38
The interconnect networks of datacenters and extreme scale high performance computers (HPC) will require a bandwidth density, in terms of connections per area, that cannot practically be met with todays optical transceiver technology. The push for high-radix connectivity in combination with an … More
