Trap-door-buffer Enhanced Fourier Spectrum Interferometer, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

To address NASA's need for slow- and fast-light technologies, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes a fiber-based ADF trap-door-buffer FTI with more powerful spectrum resolving power than FTI supported by conventional dispersion-dependant slow-light. For the Phase I program, XII will prototype a fiber-based ADF trap-door-buffer FTI and demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed technique for high delay-time bandwidth and enhanced spectral resolution. For the Phase II program, XII will focus on refining the prototype system design and development with improved hardware and software. For the Phase III program, XII will focus on optimizing the prototype performance and collaborating with our commercial partners to package the sensor technology into a commercially-available system.
