Abstract : Boston University Photonics Center (BUPC) conducted a project in collaboration with colleagues at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) on the subject of advancing photonics technologies, converting photonics technologies into prototypes that serve Army needs, and testing photonics technology prototypes with support from ARL partners. BUPC performed a series of high-level R&D projects and developed hardware prototypes for sniper detection, bacterial and viral detection, laser communication, blue light and UV light source development, and nanophotonic detection systems.
