NSF Research Grant

Photonics Spectra
Feb 2010
Vixar of Plymouth, Minn., has received a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research grant from the National Science Foundation for the development of integrated wafer-scale vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers with heterogeneous lensing. The project is expected to broaden the range of applications for the technology within the industrial, medical, consumer and office product areas.


GLOSSARY
lens
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
