Jmar to Continue Development of Laser-Based, Remote IED Detectors
Sep 2006
Jmar Technologies Inc., a San Diego-based developer of laser-based technology and x-ray processes for imaging, analysis and fabrication at the nanoscale, has received an award for $711,000, including a $210,000 option, in Phase II funding from the US Army's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program. This award supports the continued development of Jmar's compact laser system used for real-time spectrochemical hazard analysis in the field. Under the Phase II contract, Jmar will design and build two prototypes to demonstrate both man-portable and vehicle-mounted systems. Work under this contract is expected to be completed in 2007. Using Jmar's proprietary BriteLight technology, the new laser system will be designed specifically for adjustable, double-pulse mode operation to support laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). LIBS techniques are well-suited to field analysis since only the laser beam must reach the sample, allowing safe, remote monitoring of hazardous materials in difficult to reach locations.

In a periodic function or wave, the segment of the period that has elapsed, measured from some fixed origin. If the time for one period is expressed as 360° along a time axis, the phase position is called the phase angle.
