Advanced Multilayer Systems for National Security

Regina Soufli (17-SI-001)


We are developing an understanding of the physics of layer interfaces by investigating their physical and chemical properties, especially pertaining to ultrathin coatings on multilayer dielectric mirrors found in high-power laser systems. >>


Fabrication of Functionally Graded Optical Components Using Additive Manufacturing

Rebecca Dylla-Spears (16-SI-003)


Using additive manufacturing methods, we are investigating new classes of functionally graded optical materials with spatially tailored changes in properties. >>
