  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  5. Wavelength Stabilized High-Power Diode Lasers for Alkali Atom Pumping

    SBC: Photodigm, Inc.            Topic: MDA10007

    This Phase I SBIR proposal is submitted to address the needs of researchers needing high power narrow spectral linewidth diode laser pump sources for alkali vapor lasers. Diode-pumped alkali vapor lasers (DPALs) can be most efficiently pumped with spectrally-stabilized laser diode arrays (LDAs) with very narrow linewidths (a few GHz.) This allows DPAL operation at lower pressure as well as incre ...
