Award List:

SBIR Phase I: A Portable High-Power Tunable Terahertz Source using a Two-Color VECSEL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Michael Yarorough, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a novel room temperature, narrow-line, high power vertical external-cavity semiconductor laser (VECSEL) THz source based on difference-frequency-mixing of high-power circulating dual wavelength fields in a high-finesse… More

High Power Room Temperature Terahertz Local Oscillator

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Joe michael Yarborough, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,995.00
Abstract:
We propose to build a high-power, room temperature compact continuous wave terahertz local oscillator for driving heterodyne receivers in the 1-5 THz frequency window. The local oscillator is based on the recently discovered terahertz emission of a high-power infra-red vertical external-cavity… More

High Power Room Temperature Terahertz Local Oscillator

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Michael Yarborough, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,981.00
Abstract:
The motivation of the proposed SBIR is to develop, demonstrate and commercialize a compact, low-mass, high output power (1-10 milliwatt), tunable source of CW THz radiation operating at room temperature. The source will be useful both as a narrow band frequency stable sources for driving heterodyne… More
