Molecular OptoElectronics Wins NSF Grant, Licensing Agreement

Photonics Spectra
Dec 1996
Los Alamos National Laboratory has granted an exclusive licensing agreement to Molecular OptoElectronics Corp. of Watervliet, N.Y., to develop, manufacture and market the laboratory's electro-optic crystal mosaics for the generation of terahertz radiation. With further developments, the company believes it can expand applications in the infrared to microwave range. Molecular OptoElectronics also earned a $100,000 Small Business Technology Transfer award from the National Science Foundation for the development of an electro-optic terahertz detector with potential imaging and remote-sensing applications.

terahertz radiation
Electromagnetic radiation with frequencies between 300 GHz and 10 THz, and existing between regions of the electromagnetic spectrum that are typically classified as the far-infrared and microwave regions. Because terahertz waves have the ability to penetrate some solid materials, they have the potential for applications in medicine and surveillance.
