Award List:

SBIR Phase I: High Power Pulsed Fiber Laser for EUV Lithography

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Thomas Sosnowski, PhD
Award Amount: $144,444.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will establish the feasibility of a power scalable, short pulse fiber laser that is suitable for use in Extreme UV Lithography (EUVL). A power scalable solution is proposed here, based on fiber lasers using Chirally-Coupled Core (3C) fiber… More

High Power Pump Couplers for High Energy Fiber Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Thomas Sosnowski, VP of Engineering
Award Amount: $79,385.00
Abstract:
Realization of fiber lasers with output power in the multi-kW range critically depends on the development of high power fiber components. This proposal specifically addresses the design, development and manufacture of new, all-fiber pump couplers using large-core, single-mode Chirally-Coupled Core… More

SBIR Phase I: Cost-Effective, High Volume Emitter Wrap Through Manufacturing Process Development for Higher Efficiency Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Michelle L. Stock
Award Amount: $149,966.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a practical manufacturing process and the key enabling hardware for Emitter Wrap Through (EWT) solar cells. EWT technology is significant because it can improve the efficiency of crystalline-silicon solar cells to… More

SBIR Phase II: High Power Pulsed Fiber Laser for EUV Lithography

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Thomas Sosnowski
Award Amount: $444,892.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project has the core objective to develop a modular, laser power scaling concept based on recent innovations in high efficiency fiber lasers. The proposed concept uses large mode area, chirally-coupled core fiber to construct high power, pulsed fiber… More

Incoherent Fiber-Laser Array Pumped OPCPA Laser-Plasma Accelerator Driver

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Gaston Tudury, Dr. – 630-234-9252
Award Amount: $149,856.00
Abstract:
So-called tabletop accelerators are a holy-grail of high energy/high field physics and, if developed, will spur a revolution in particle physics discoveries and also in medical treatments. This is because planned next-generation particle accelerators are still kilometers in size and billions of… More

Compact, Rugged and Ultrafast Femtosecond Laser for Hazardous Material Detection at Range

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Thomas Sosnowski, Vice-President Engineering – (734) 255-1338
Award Amount: $68,660.00
Abstract:
Arbor Photonics proposes to design a compact, rugged, high-power femtosecond (fs) pulsed fiber laser system capable of delivering pulse energy greater than 100 J, pulse width narrower than 100 fs, and bandwidth broader than 25 nm. Successful development of such a laser will enable significant… More

Fiber-laser Array Pumped OPCPA Laser-Plasma Accelerator Driver

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Thomas Sosnowski, Dr. – 734-255-1338
Award Amount: $999,625.00
Abstract:
So-called tabletop accelerators are a holy-grail of high energy/high field physics and, if developed, as indicated by the Department of Energy in the Accelerators for America report, will spur a revolution in particle physics discoveries and also in medical treatments. This is because planned… More
