Abstract
Q-Peak, Inc. proposes to develop a new generation of infrared isolators based on high-transparency ceramic materials, which promise improved characteristics over equivalent single-crystal materials. These include the ability to scale to the larger sizes needed for high-power systems, as well as reduced losses due to the elimination of impurities introduced by the crystal-growth process. The materials, combined with innovative cooling designs, should allow isolator power capabilities greatly exceeding present devices.
