Professors Sheik-Bahae (Principal Investigator) and Mafi (Co-PI) have been awarded a highly competitive U.S. Department of Defense Multidisciplinary University Initiative grant for their project entitled Multi-disciplinary Approach to Radiation Balanced Lasers (MARBLE).
About the project
The field of radiation balanced lasers deals with excess heat generated in lasers, and MARBLE will address this with rare earth elements and semiconductors in disks, fibers, and microstructures.
About the program
The DoD MURI program focuses on high-risk basic research and attempts to acheive something that has never been done before. The award totals $7.5M over 5 years, and includes collaboration with scientists at Los Alamos National Labs, LANL, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Washington and the University of Notre Dame.
Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!
