  1. Ultra High Average Power Diode Pumped Nd:YAG and Yb:YAG Laser

    SBC: LE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Building on previous work with rod-based solid-state lasers, we propose to investigate the utility of demonstrating 100 kW class diode-pumped Yb:YAG slab lasers by operating the laser cooling system at cryogenic (77 _K) temperatures. The major objectives of the proposed Phase I program are to extend our thermal and stress modeling to slab lasers, build a model of expected optical performance, and ...

  2. Micromachine UV-Vis-IR High Resolution Fast Imaging Photodetector

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: N/A

    Microchannel plates (MCP) are essential for high gain UV-visible-near IR imaging and detection applications in defense, science, medicine, industry, security and consumer applications. Common MCP are fabricated from activated lead glass and suffer from a gain that falls rapidly with cumulative operation. MCP are expensive, available in limited areas, have significant spatial & pixel gain non-unifo ...

  3. Multiple Rectangular Discharge CO2 Laser

    SBC: Qsource, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative discharge geometry for a very compact, area cooled, high average power CO2 laser employing a two mirror, waveguide-stable optical cavity is proposed. The specific Phase I result sought is the generation of an average CO2 output power of 1 W/cm2 of wall cooling area in a geometry that has a total cooling area of 140 cm2. A lightweight CO2 amplifier version of a future Phase II devic ...

  4. Fabrication of Angstrom Wide Notch Filters Using Laser Induced Densification.

    SBC: RUGATE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A unique method for producing very stable, sub-angstrom wide, reflection notch, and bandpass filters, with high optical rejection is proposed. This method takes advantage of a subtle process observed in vacuum ultra-violet (VUV) lithographic systems using fused silica optics known as, laser induced compaction. Multiple exposures of high power excimer radiation induces very small index of refractio ...

  5. A Small, Light, Weight, Low Power, Low Cost, FT-IR Spectrometer

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    There are many military, commercial, and medical applications for a small, rugged, and inexpensive infrared (IR) spectrometer. A Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer would be an ideal tool for such measurements; however, FT-IR spectrometers are very sensitive to vibration and subject to misalignment from mechanically or thermally induced forces. To help overcome these barriers, BMDO pro ...
