Geltech wins STTR contract for anamorphic lenses

NASA`s Office of Aeronautics and Space Transportation Technology Program has awarded Geltech Inc. (Orlando, FL) a $500,000 Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II contract to develo¥a cost-effective high-precision fabrication technology for radiation-resistant optical components. These components, including anamorphic lenses, will be able to simultaneously circularize and collimate the light from a semiconductor laser while withstanding high-radiation environments such as space. The company will be collaborating with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Oak Ridge, TN) and the University of Alabama (Huntsville, AL). In addition to space uses, potential applications include optical communications, instrumentation and metrology, and commercial products such as optical storage and laser printers.
