Fiber Image-Guide Airframe Roughness Profilometer (FIGARP)

For DARPA, Holoptic developed a Fiber-Image-Guide Airframe Roughness Profilometer, based on a novel phase resolvable full-field optical coherence tomography (OCT) and a handheld Fiber-Image-Guide (FIG) probe, to examine aircraft and predict airframe crack nucleation prediction through surface roughness measurement.

Wideband Holographic Solar Concentrator Based on Substrate-guided Holograms (WHOLOSCOPE)

Holoptic developed a new wideband holographic solar concentrator based on substrate-guided holograms and a flexible off-the-shelf thin-film photovoltaic cell positioned on the edge of the hologram. By using flexible highly efficient multiplexed substrate-guided holograms (SGH) recorded for the wide band of solar light and flexible thin-film PV cells that attach to the edge of the holograms, it efficiently covers the solar waveband and achieves up to a 300-fold solar energy conversion enhancement.

Flexible Lightweight Radiation Protection Garment (FLEXPROG)

For DARPA, Holoptic developed a new Flexible Lightweight Radiation Protection Garment system based on our hybrid sol-gel technology for the protection of the warfighter, the physician, and the first-responder from radiation. This hybrid inorganic/organic polymer material system bridges the gap between inorganic and polymer for radiation protection in a coating with good mechanical and thermal stability and high chemical resistance.
