Award Totals

SBIR Phase I
STTR Phase I

Award List

  1. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 NavyDepartment of Defense
  2. Diode Pumped Nd:LuAlO3 Laser

    Amount: $49,936.00

    The optical pumping of helium at 1083 nm is proving useful in applications involving magnetometry, polarized electron sources and neutron spin filters, but existing sources at 1083 nm are limited in e ...

    SBIR Phase I 1995 Department of Commerce
  3. N/A

    Amount: $64,900.00


    SBIR Phase I 2000 Missile Defense AgencyDepartment of Defense
  4. Compact Beam Director for High Power Lasers

    Amount: $715,000.00

    The precise and timely control of the direction of laser beams is crucial to a wide variety of industrial, commercial, scientific and military activities. Examples include, material processing, LIDAR ...

    SBIR Phase II 2001 Missile Defense AgencyDepartment of Defense
  5. 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
  6. 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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 2002 Missile Defense AgencyDepartment of Defense
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 ...
