The Fiber Optic Materials Research Program (FOMRP) conducts various research projects ranging from the synthesis of new optical materials by chemical vapor deposition to advanced optical signal transmission and processing. It emphasizes research that focuses on future and advanced applications of optical fibers, particularly those that extend beyond telecommunications. Key projects include research on fiber optics for biomedical applications, design and fabrication of fiber optic sensors, fabrication of fiber optic lasers and optical amplifiers, and the development of infrared transmitting fibers based on halide and chalcogenide glasses as well as crystals and hollow waveguides. The FOMRP seeks to conduct generic research on a cooperative basis with industry and government and to provide a mechanism for technology transfer of its activities.
