Orbits Lightwave’s “virtual ring” and “slow light” technologies offer the state-of-the-art in high-power and low-noise laser oscillators. Originally, the technology was developed using DARPA funding; this Phase II SBIR project is aiming to develop a ruggedized, compact and low-noise laser for the F-35 photonics program. Orbits technology is also a solution for other DoD applications requiring narrow linewidth and low-noise laser sources. For example, the Navy’s fiber-optic acoustic sensors systems need lasers having extremely low phase and amplitude noise. Other applications include: coherent LIDAR systems, seed lasers having high SNR and good frequency stability for high-power laser weapon systems, coherent communications system, and lasers for atomic sensors and quantum information processing. We strongly believe that our laser technology is a superior solution for many applications.
