The desired outcome of this STTR project is the development of compact, stand-alone, economical, and rugged pulse shaper units that can be used to control chemical reactions, and have a wide range of applications based on molecular control for detection of chemical and biological threats, explosive, and toxic chemicals. In addition, these units will enable a broad range of fundamental studies. During Phase II we will subject the breadboard unit successfully developed in Phase I to rigorous testing and evaluation by experts in order to develop an alpha version that will undergo further testing resulting in the beta version pre-commercial prototype. The beta version prototype will be ready for field evaluation by a number of customers in the research, industrial, and military markets, and will be operable for longer than a week without maintenance. Phase III will focus on sales of the commercial products via strategic partnership with laser manufacturers and end users. Based on technical attributes and on a strong intellectual property position, Biophotonic Solutions is poised to become the leader in pulse shaping equipment and its applications in the Homeland Security, Biomedical Technology and research markets.
