Aculight Corp., a developer of laser technologies, has received an 18-month contract worth $2.3 million from the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory to investigate its new semiconductor and fiber laser technologies. Aculight's research will focus on improving the optical characteristics of these lasers.

As current laser products are not suitable for some Air Force applications, Aculight's latest technology is expected to provide substantial improvements in performance of certain types of lasers. The research work includes the analysis of new optical methods and fabrication of prototype devices. Aculight believes the technology developed under this contract could lead to advances in other non-defense related laser applications, including materials processing.
