This report decribes the research and results of the activity on various projects over the period of the grant. The optics of study include atom optics and matter-wave quantum point contacts, theory of optical refrigeration of semiconductors and nonlinear optical response of quantum well Bragg structures, tuneable high-brightness vertical external cavity surface emitting lasers and generation of blue-green lasers by frequency doubling, quantum dots for cavity QED entanglement, near-field nonlinear optics, and optically bound matter. The project supports student research and generates opportunities for scientific publications. The projects involve interaction with colleagues and DOD laboratories and supports in-house Army and Air Force research efforts to develop optics technology relevant to military applications.
