Abstract

This Phase II proposal proposes to develop a fully packaged high-throughput non-mechanical beam steeor (NMBS) in mid-wave infrared (MWIR), capable of maintaining stable operation with multiple-wavelength laser sources in the mid-wave infrared (MWIR) band with high beam quality, efficiency, and power on target. The NMBS is built using the liquid crystal (LC) wave guide (WG) technology on the foundation established during the Phase I achievements. The Phase II Base aims at developing and delivering fully functional MWIR NMBS with 30% optical throughput efficiency and 15o steering angle, while the Phase II Option is to develop, qualify and deliver the NMBS products in b-version, reaching technology readiness level (TRL)³8/9 that can be mass-produced with manufacturing readiness level (MRL)³7 in four (4) years after the Phase II project starts.
