Aculight Awarded Research Grants

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
BOTHELL, Wash., Sept. 21 -- Aculight Corp., a developer of laser technologies, has won two Small Business Innovation Research program grants, a Phase II contract from the Department of Energy (DOE) for $750,000, and a Phase I contract from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for $100,000.

The DOE award will fund development of a compact, rugged, efficient, short-pulse fiber laser source that can operate over a wide repetition rate range for use in active imaging and remote sensing systems. Based on Aculight's innovative pulsed fiber laser technology, the new laser source will enable devices on ground, air and space platforms that feature increased capability, range and resolution than is currently available.

For the NIH, Aculight will produce a compact, efficient ultraviolet laser source for use in Raman spectroscopy, a technique for detecting identifying chemical and biological species such as carcinogens and biological warfare agents. Aculight said it will ultimately enable the development of a portable Raman spectrometer that could have applications in medical imaging, homeland security and industrial sensing.

raman spectroscopy
That branch of spectroscopy concerned with Raman spectra and used to provide a means of studying pure rotational, pure vibrational and rotation-vibration energy changes in the ground level of molecules. Raman spectroscopy is dependent on the collision of incident light quanta with the molecule, inducing the molecule to undergo the change.
