  4. High-Power High-Linearity High-Speed Photodetection Modules

    SBC: AURRION, INC.            Topic: SB101008

    Optical links are very attractive for application in antenna systems due to their low loss, lightweight flexible cabling, immunity to electromagnetic interference, broad bandwidth, and overall ability to remote antennas over distances not possible with conventional electronic approaches. The main limitation in realizing this goal are the linearity and power handling of the optical components requi ...

  5. Integrated Low Jitter Mode Locked Lasers

    SBC: AURRION, INC.            Topic: SB091007

    Mode Locked Lasers (MLLs), will likely be extremely useful for many military applications because of the low timing jitter ( < 100 fs), narrow pulse width ( < 50 fs), and high peak pulse intensity of MLLs. Important military applications that benefit from MLLs include high ENOB Analog to Digital converters (ADCs), encryption, LIDAR, high speed communications, and optical time domain reflectometry ...
