The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Terahertz Source and Spectrometer

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF073012

    We propose to develop a fiber-based, high power, narrow linewidth, and tunable THz source to implement a novel THz spectroscopy system by leveraging our proprietary fiber laser technology. This proposed high power fiber-based THz source will be generated by using a nonlinear crystal based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) pumped by high power pulsed fiber lasers in MOPA with high repetition ...

  2. Tunable Single Frequency Fiber Laser for Fiber Optic Sensor Systems

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N08046

    In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, low phase noise, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser by developing an innovative Er/Yb-co-doped polarization maintaining (PM) single mode fiber. Such a fiber laser is needed for advanced fiber optical towed array sonar systems. In Phase I, we will design and fabricate this new fiber, demonstrate fixed wavelength low ...

  3. High Efficiency Fiber Laser for Advanced Accelerator

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 49a

    The Department of Energy has identified a need for a single-polarization, mode-locked, high-power, 2-micron fiber laser for an advanced laser electron accelerator. The 2-micron laser wavelength would allow for both larger accelerator dimensions and the acceleration of more charge, compared to the 0.8 micron Ti:Sapphire laser. Another advantage of the 2-micron wavelength is the possibility of using ...

  4. High-Power 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    SBC: ADVALUE TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF071137

    Thulium doped fiber laser near 2 micron is of great interest because of the potential possibility of combining high efficiency, high output power, and retina safety together. This proposal is for the development of new Tm-doped glass fiber for efficient high power 2ƒnmicron fiber laser capable of generating an output power of up to thousands watts. The doping concentration of the proposed glass f ...

  5. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  6. High Efficiency Single Photon Up-Conversion in Waveguides and Pump Wavelength Longer than the Signal Wavelength

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase 1 SBIR effort will demonstrate the feasibility of low noise single photon up conversion using KTiOPO4 (KTP) or LiNbO3 (LN) or Stoichiometric LiTaO3 (SLT) periodically poled waveguides and an 1800nm pump for a high efficiency single photon detector. The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher efficiency s ...

  7. Waveguide Phase Modulator for Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits in KTP

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    This SBIR Phase II effort proposes the development and integration of a Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) into an all fiber-based seed laser system used in high spectral resolution aerosol and cloud lidar applications. The PLC integrates a frequency doubling element, a waveguide splitter, and phase modulator into a monolithic, waveguide-based device. This technology is important for lidar systems r ...

  8. Highly Efficient, Compact, Wavelength Converters for Pulsed and CW Laser Sources Used in Lidar-Based Remote Sensing and Ranging Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    AdvR, Inc. proposes the development of a highly efficient, fiber pigtailed, waveguide-based UV frequency converter module. This UV module will be an important element in future NASA sponsored Doppler lidar and High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) aerosol missions. The key innovation is the use of dual-element periodically poled waveguides embedded in a nonlinear optical substrate. This innovat ...

  9. Optical Communications for ASW and MIW Applications

    SBC: AMBALUX CORP.            Topic: N07T017

    The proposed Phase II STTR program will implement forward-error correction and other processing, as well as coherent transceiver operation, in order to improve the performance of underwater communications systems. Significant reduction in the bit-error rate will be demonstrated under both shot-noise and ambient-noise limited conditions.

  10. Tools and Materials for Hands-On Climate and Weather Science Education

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The majority of students and educators would probably agree that students are better able to grasp scientific concepts from the use of hands-on activities and other inquiry-based educational practices than from typical lecture problem solving methods. Anasphere, Inc is working to make inquiry based tools and materials for weather and climate education more readily available for students and educat ...
