Abstract
SA Photonics is proposing a program to develop a high speed electro-optic sensor for a high power directed energy power density meter, the SA Photonics' Power density meter (SA-PDM). We will utilize a photonic approach with no active electronic elements in the sensor probe thus allowing detection of extremely high field densities. The innovative approach used in developing Our SA-PDM will improve high Frequency sensitivity by 1000x over current approaches and meets the requirements of this solicitation to measure frequencies up to 100GHz with better than 0.4dB accuracy. Furthermore, this photonic approach with no active electronics in the sensor probe, allow us to meet the field density requirements stated in this solicitation as well.
