The Microsystems Technology Office is holding a Proposers Day meeting covering the new Lasers for Universal Microscale Optical Systems (LUMOS) program. The goal of LUMOS is to transform optical microsystems through the co-integration of direct-emission materials, such as InP, GaN, and GaAs, with low-loss dielectric materials such as silicon and silicon nitride to create accessible, manufacturable systems. LUMOS also seeks to leverage new concepts in nanophotonic structures, non-reciprocity, and nonlinear processes, as well as alternative materials that possess strong electro-optic and novel properties, such as thin-film lithium niobate, III-nitrides, and other advanced compounds that enable new component functionality. Finally, LUMOS seeks to illustrate the benefits of complete component integration by pursuing DoD-relevant system demonstrations with compelling gains in performance and significant size, weight, and power (SWaP) advantages over current state-of-the-art solutions.
Additional details on the Proposers Day, including registration instructions, are available at https://go.usa.gov/xpZ4A. Registration closes at 11:59 PM EST on November 13, 2019, or when capacity is reached.
Please address administrative questions to DARPA-SNfirstname.lastname@example.org and refer to the LUMOS Proposers Day (DARPA-SN-20-08) in all correspondence.
DARPA hosts Proposers Days to provide potential performers with information on whether and how they might respond to the Government’s research and development solicitations and to increase efficiency in proposal preparation and evaluation. Therefore, the LUMOS Proposers Day is open only to registered potential applicants, and not to the media or general public.
