Abstract
Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) is a new technology which can be used for developing high performance laser components for Atom-based Sensors technology. The narrow linewidth of these devices combined with good polarization extinction ratio and large spacing between the longitudinal modes which makes them relatively immune to mode hopping, and their high reliability make them uniquely suited for this application. Navy requires the diode lasers at 7xx and 8xx wavelengths for several alkali atomic lines. Princeton Optronics proposes an approach to develop such a laser for Navy in this SBIR using the VCSEL technology. In phase I, we would develop the specifications for the laser and design it and do experiments to determine the validity of the approach and in phase II develop the lasers at the selected wavelengths and test them thoroughly and deliver samples to Navy.
