Company Profile


  1. Laser Cleaning of Optics and Coatings for High Energy Laser Applications

    Amount: $100,000.00

    Attenuated total internal reflection laser cleaning will be investigated as a solution to DPAL window contaminantion.

    SBIR Phase I 2013 Department of Defense
  2. Novel Laser Gain Media

    Amount: $80,000.00

    The 1D2 to 3F4 (blue) emission in a thulium doped lutetium aluminum garnet (Tm:LuAG) has been reported to be approximately three times broader (~30 nm) than this transition in other hosts. This projec ...

  4. Reduced Print Thru in HEL Deformable Mirrors

    Amount: $100,000.00

    This project will investigate a passive solution to the deformable mirror print through problem. No additional sensor or control subsystems will be required. The high reflector surface will be posit ...

    SBIR Phase I 2007 Missile Defense AgencyDepartment of Defense
  5. Improve/develop metrology for VLA (very low absorption) Coatings

    Amount: $750,000.00

    The development of fast, reliable, accurate and non-destructive absorption measurements is critical to the development of very low absorption/high laser damage threshold optical thin films for HEL and ...

    SBIR Phase II 2004 Missile Defense AgencyDepartment of Defense
  6. MW Class Near Infrared Optics

    Amount: $70,000.00

    Aiming laser weapons accurately is a difficult task that is made even more difficult if the laser windows and other components steer or distort the beam during thermal transients caused by the laser b ...

    SBIR Phase I 2004 NavyDepartment of Defense
  7. Develop Coatings that Repel Contamination

    Amount: $100,000.00

    "Attenuated total internal reflection couples light from the inside of a transparent optical material into an absorbing contaminant contacting the polished surface of that material. If that contamin ...

    SBIR Phase I 2002 Air ForceDepartment of Defense
  8. Improve/develop metrology for VLA (very low absorption) Coatings

    Amount: $70,000.00

    "Minimizing the optical absorption of thin films is crucial to producing low loss, high laser damage threshold coatings for mirrors, windows and other optical components. Determining absorption by me ...
