  1. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...

  2. Dynamic Spectral Filtering Techniques

    SBC: NANOOPTO CORP.            Topic: MDA04079

    NanoOpto proposes to combine novel nano-structured materials with liquid crystal actuators in an extension of resonant grating filter theory to design a highly compact, high performance, easily manufactured, dynamic spectral filter. The theoretical breakthrough is twofold: first, in the use of nano-scale gratings in the filter design - this allows significantly and continuously modify material pr ...

  3. Enhanced Photorefractive Lithium Niobate for Passive Agile Filters

    SBC: Nova Phase, Inc.            Topic: MDA04079

    Single crystals of lithium niobate can be used to construct a very simple passive agile filter, in which an incoming beam interferes with its own back-reflection to set up a diffraction grating that results in energy transfer and depletion of the transmitted power. The virtue of such an approach is that it can respond to incident coherent radiation of any wavelength within its range of sensitivit ...

  4. An InGaAs FPA for Multiple Purpose Imaging from the Visible through the Short Wave Infrared

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: MDA03073

    We will design, develop, and deliver a 128x128 pixel indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) focal plane array (FPA) camera that satisfies or exceeds all of the technical requirements of this solicitation. The use of a substrate-removed InGaAs photodiode array will exhibit high quantum efficiency from 0.4 µm through 1.7 mm. The camera will thus be usable both for visible imaging and for the imaging of ...

  5. A Shortwave Infrared Imaging System for Ultra-High-Speed Tracking of Multiple Targets

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: MDA04068

    We will develop and deliver an imaging system capable of simultaneously tracking up to 8 independent objects at rates in excess of 1000 frames per second. The system will incorporate a novel indium gallium arsenide focal plane array and camera and will be sensitive to the 0.9 mm to 1.7 mm shortwave infrared wavelength band. The final deliverable will be capable of imaging multiple regions-of-int ...
