  1. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...

  2. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  3. Monolithic photonic platform for high-power InGaAs/AlInAs quantum cascade laser beam combining and steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: A17AT006

    TransWave Photonics, LLC proposes to develop mid-wave infrared photonic integrated circuits based on monolithic integration of passive low-loss waveguides, thermo-optically tunable photonic elements, and quantum cascade gain sections within the same InGaAs/AlInAs/InP platform. The proposed approach will enable power combining and 2-dimensinoal beam steering of the outputs from multiple high-power ...

  4. Monolithic Slow Light Enhanced Chip-Integrated Absorption Spectrometer from 3-15 microns

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: A17AT005

    We will develop a lab-on-chip optical absorption spectrometer spanning 3-15micron molecular fingerprint region, in a single epitaxially grown heterostructure that monolithically integrates thermally tuned distributed feedback quantum cascade laser (QCL) and quantum cascade detector (QCD) arrays with slotted photonic crystal waveguides (SPCWs) in a mid-infrared InGaAs passive photonic waveguide. In ...

  5. Dual Ka/Q-Band Low Noise Amplifiers

    SBC: ENGIN-IC, INC.            Topic: AF171123

    ENGIN-ICs objective in Phase II is to complete the design and layout of a < 2-dB noise figure, > 20-dB gain, and > 25-dBm OIP3 dual Ka-/Q-band LNA, requiring < 0.5 W DC power, and handling RF power levels to 1 W (requiring a GaAs Schottky diode limiter for GaAs HEMT processes, which ENGIN-IC will design, fabricate, and test), using two short gate length HEMT processes which can be space qualified. ...

  6. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  7. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...
