Special Notice ENERGY, DEPARTMENT OF TECHNOLOGY/BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY Transparent Ceramics Fabricated by Material Jet Printing

The Department of Energy (DOE) is offering a collaboration opportunity to further develop and commercialize its Transparent Ceramics Fabricated by Material Jet Printing technology. This technology aims to address the need in the laser industry for a cost-effective method to produce planar waveguides used for laser gain media with 3D control of the index and gain profiles. The technology utilizes a Material Jetting technique to form a ceramic green body that is subsequently processed into a transparent ceramic optic with unique tunable spatial control of the composition. It allows for the fabrication of structures with complex composition and optical functionality, as well as rapid and gradual compositional changes. The technology offers advantages such as enhanced mode stability and efficiency improvements over conventional devices. Potential applications include the fabrication of transparent ceramic optics with complex composition and optical functionality. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is seeking industry partners with the ability to bring this technology to the market. Interested companies should provide a statement of interest including company information, relevant expertise, and facilities.
