  5. High power single frequency source for cavity ring-down spectroscopy

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes to develop a laser source that will enable NIST to perform highly sensitive water vapor detection via cavity ring-down spectroscopy. The source will operate over a wavelength region centered at 1380nm. It will be based upon frequency conversion of a single frequency fiber source using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO).The performance of the source in terms of several critica ...

  6. Low Damage Ion Beam Etching Technique and Method for Compositional Profiling of Thin Multilayer Films

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Thin film multilayers of nanometer scale thickness are fundamental to the future of electronics and communications technologies. Chemical depth profiling by ion etching techniques are critical to the characterization of these structures. A fundamental problem with current ion etching technologies is that typical ion energies (~1k eV to 20 keV) create extensive damage and intermixing of nanometer t ...
