  3. Monolithic Rare Earth Doped PTR Glass Laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: S101

    The main goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a monolithic solid state laser on the basis of PTR glass co-doped with luminescent rare earth ions. The main feature of this new complex material is its ability to be simultaneously an active laser medium and a phase photosensitive medium. That way the same piece of material can be used as laser gain element and a monolithic laser r ...

  10. Group III-Nitride LNAs for Microwave Radiometry

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: S103

    This phase I proposal addresses the need for microwave and millimeter wave Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) for remote sensing applications of the earth's atmosphere. In this work, IIIAN proposes using group III-nitride materials, specifically AlGaN/GaN HEMT structures, to fabricate LNAs for microwave radiometers operating from 165 GHz up to 270 GHz. The group III-nitrides have excellent physica ...
