  3. A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component w ...
