Intraband manufactures high power, reliable, and efficient mid-infrared (IR) semiconductor lasers based on its patented Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) technology. Our initial targets for Intraband QCLs are directed infrared-countermeasure (DIRCM) systems including the Department of Navy’s Large Aircraft Infrared Counter-Measure system (LAIRCM) deployed on large helicopters and other systems. Intraband is interested in defense applications such as remote chem/bio sensing and covert communications. In 2018, we published the highest continuous-wave (CW) output power, 2.6W, for a metal-organic-chemical-vapor-deposition-grown QCL and continue to innovate via new programs in the areas of ultra-high efficiency and brightness, surface emission, and QCL arrays. We plan to sell to DIRCM manufacturers and seek partners to aid in ramping production, and to develop module manufacturing capabilities, and new application opportunities.
