  1. A Liquid Crystal on Silicon Spatial Light Modulator for Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA04024

    Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology combines the light modulating capability of liquid crystal with compact VLSI backplanes to create reflective micro displays. This proposal addresses the limitations of current LCoS technology in meeting the needs of an IR scene projector, and proposes an approach for the development of a multi-purpose VLSI backplane that is suitable for use in the visib ...

  8. Chemical Leak Sensors

    SBC: DIRECTED ENERGY SOLUTIONS            Topic: MDA04074

    We propose a novel approach for the development of a highly-sensitive chemical leak sensor for the detection of Cl2, NH3, O2, I2 and H2O2 at the part per million (ppm) level. Our device approach utilizes Raman spectroscopy for species identification, diode lasers as the Raman pump source, high finesse cavities (HFCs) for passive optical pump enhancement, and an integrating sphere for efficient sig ...

  10. Compact, Efficient Laser Radar Transmitters using Wavelength Stabilized Pump Diodes

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04038

    CTI has extensive experience with high performance, mil-spec, flight-qualified LADAR systems, and we are keenly aware that the environmental control systems for such lasers can often be larger, heavier, and more power-hungry than the lasers themselves. Additionally, transmitters for LADAR systems urgently need to take a technological step forward from their present-day configurations that tend to ...
