  1. Mid-infrared Fiber Laser Based on Super-Continuum

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: ST051008

    Infrared counter-measures require a mid-infrared laser operating between 3-5 microns with average powers of tens of watts. Omni Sciences, Inc.'s (OSI's) aims to develop a Mid-Infra-Red FIber Laser (MIRFIL) based on super-continuum (SC) generation that produces a continuous spectrum between 1-5 microns. OSI has demonstrated broadband SC in high-nonlinearity fused silica (HiNL) and ZBLAN fluoride ...

  4. Silicon-Based Photonic Crystal Lasers

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: AF05T013

    ALTAIR Center in cooperation with the University of Rochester proposes to develop the first silicon-based photonic crystal laser diode. The photonic crystal microcavity forms gain region of the laser diode. This enhances the system efficiency. The laser operating either in bandgap edge emitting mode with enhanced density of states or using defect mode in the photonic crystal structure will exhibit ...

  6. High Critical Current in Metal Organic Derived YBCO Films

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF05T009

    Second Generation (2G) High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wire based on the YBCO coated conductor is being developed for new military and commercial applications not accessible to First Generation (1G) HTS wires. Although a critical current (Ic) of nearly 300A/cm-w (77K, sf) has been obtained in 10-meter lengths of 2G conductors, significant improvement in the Ic of practical conductors is re ...
