Research Institution
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 makes them relatively immune to mode hopping, and their high reliability make them uniquely suited for this application. Navy requires the diode lasers at 780nm wavelength for Rb alkali atomic line. Princeton Optronics proposes an approach to develop such a laser for Navy in this SBIR using the VCSEL technology. In phase I, we have demonstrated the feasibility of developing such a device meeting the Navy specifications and in phase II would develop the laser and test it thoroughly and deliver samples to Navy.
