  1. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: EPIRUS, INC.            Topic: N19AT001

    Epirus presents a high powered microwave source that leverages ultra high power density solid state materials, called Leonidas, to meet all of the governments objectives for the vehicle stop and vessel stop mission. The Leonidas unit has already achieved over 10 kW of effective radiated power (ERP) in laboratory tests using software definable solid state technology and we show how this scales to a ...

  3. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: N19AT001

    HPM (high power microwave) weapons could disable vehicles, enable vehicle recovery, and reduce collateral damage. Metamagnetics, in partnership with Professor Jane Lehr (University of New Mexico), and General Atomics propose a completely solid-state HPM system based on their work in Gyromagnetic Nonlinear Transmission Lines (gNLTL) and compact High-Gain Slotted Waveguide Antennas. The system will ...

  5. Catastrophic Optical Damage Mitigation in Quantum Cascade Lasers by Facet Disordering

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    Quantum cascade laser optical output power is limited by laser facet catastrophic optical damage (COD). In edge-emitting semiconductor lasers COD is a thermal runaway process wherein the front facet of the laser heats under high power operation. This facet heating reduces the semiconductor bandgap which increases the optical absorption and also increases the electrical injection current in the fac ...

  6. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    In this program, we will develop solutions to optimize QCL fabrication processes, such as facet passivation and high thermal conductivity coatings, that will mitigate the reliability issues for high power QCL applications. In phase I, we will first evaluate all concepts and efforts that have been largely investigated for GaAs based high power diode lasers and transfer the knowledge to InP based QC ...

  7. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...

  9. Multi-Wavelength Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Planar Concave Grating Beam Combiner

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    In this proposal, a monolithic MWIR wavelength beam combining architecture ispresented based on a custom planar concave grating. This concept can combine multiple highpower quantum cascade lasers with pre-selected emission wavelengths into a single outputaperture with high efficiency. The goal is to realize all optical functions, including both activeand passive waveguiding, on the native InP subs ...
