Agiltron proposes to develop an infrared fiber having inherently attractive features of high wavelength conversion efficiency, wide wavelength-conversion bandwidth, and agile wavelength routing all in IR regions (2 ¡V 12 ƒYm). The design is closely coupled with our unique expertise in low loss IR chalcogenide fiber fabrication and IR photonics. The approach overcomes the difficulties associated with relatively low conversion efficiency and narrow bandwidth in existing R&D of fiber in ONLY VIS-NIR regions, exploiting a practical opportunity to realize a new type of infrared fiber for wavelength and routing for IR community. The proposed fibers adopt well known nonlinear fiber optics (FWM, XPS, etc.) and material known for IR application but with our unique propriety approaches in fiber design, glass/fiber process development and innovative integration. In Phase I, we will deliver a proof of concept of a new family of IR fiber for conversion and routing that is suitable for multiwatt laser output at various infrared wavelengths in the 2 ¡V 12 micron spectral region with great efforts in the mid-infrared (2 ¡V 5 microns) region. Full development of the new family of IR fiber, subsystem level testing of conversion and routing, and applications in IR region will be realized in the Phase II Program.
