STRATEGIC INITIATIVE

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. >>

STRATEGIC INITIATIVE

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. >>
