The Air Force Research Laboratory, Sensors Directorate (AFRL/RY) and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) seek applicants to provide a Center of Excellence in the development of guided-wave infrared sources. It is anticipated that successful bidders will propose tasks in both the basic and applied research domains associated with the broad categories of infrared waveguides and/or fibers for low-loss optical transmission, lasers, nonlinear conversion devices and beam control devices. Wavelength regimes of interest are those consistent with atmospheric transmission windows as well as organic and inorganic absorption in the 2-12 micron region. It is also anticipated that successful bidders will have significant experience in education of students in technical areas of interest. Successful bidders will also demonstrate a willingness to make results of research available to the technical community at large through activities such as frequent seminars, publications and presentations at conferences.
