Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Michael Larson, Sr. Device Engineer
Award Amount: $69,957.00
Abstract:
"Fast, widely-tunable frequency-agile lasers have the potential of delivering dramatic improvements in capacity, capability, robustness, compactness, and cost in fiber optic communications and sensing systems, for both military and commercial applications.The SGDBR (Sampled Grating Bragg Reflector)… More

Low-Noise, Wide-Bandwidth, Large-Area APDs for Free-Space Optical Links

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Clint Schow, Engineer
Award Amount: $99,838.00
Abstract:
For future satellite to ground optical links, large-area high-performance photodetectors are a key component. The APD is a natural choice, owing to its inherent sensitivity advantage compared to photodetectors that do not provide internal gain. Theoutput of Phase I of this program is an APD design… More

Built-In-Test (BIT) for Avionic Multi-Mode and Single Mode Fiber Optic Networks

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Christopher Coldren, Device Engineer
Award Amount: $69,837.00
Abstract:
Optical networks that operate in harsh environments such as those on military aircraft can benefit from networking equipment having Built-In-Test (BIT) functionality to assist in determining potential network failure points. A BIT functionality isgenerally not present in commercially available… More

Adaptive Self-Monitoring of Widely-Tunable Universal WDM Transmitter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Michael Larson, Chief Design Engineer
Award Amount: $98,997.00
Abstract:
A widely tunable universal wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) transmitter will be a key technology for advanced battlespace platforms requiring the interconnection of a large number of sensors, data processors, and data storage equipment. In such adynamic WDM network, wavelengths are allocated… More
