  4. A Large Aperture Electro-Optic Beamsteerer

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: AF08T021

    We propose to develop a fully electro-optic beamsteerer for large aperture beams. The beamsteerer will be able to deflect 3-cm beam into a field of regard of 50 deg x 20 deg. In Phase I we will demonstrate and model key technologies needed for a Phase II deliverable. These include a highly birefringent liquid crystals, waveguide couplers, and high-index, high contrast waveguides that will give ...

  9. A Novel Low Cost Fiber Bragg Grating Stabilized Multiwavele

    SBC: FERMIONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A novel fiber Bragg grating stabilized laser array is proposed here. The multi-wavelength source is aimed at low cost dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications where the superior properties, i.e., low chirp, low temperature dependence, of the fiber Grating is utilized. The resultant product is a coolerless multi-wavelength laser source that can be modulated with direct current. T ...

  10. A Priori Error-Controlled Simulations of Electromagnetic Phenomena for HPC

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: A11aT015

    Recently significant advances have been made in the high fidelity modeling of electromagnetic phenomena in complex geometries in the time-domain. To make high fidelity simulations of scattering and radiation tractable, the computational region must be truncated in a manner allowing outgoing waves to leave with minimal reflection from the boundary. We, HyPerComp in collaboration with Profess ...
