Tetramer Receives National Science Foundation Grant To Develop Optical Fiber Coatings

Posted by:

Tetramer has received NSF funding under a Phase II SBIR grant (IIP-1330948) to develop and commercialize high-temperature, highly processable optical fiber coatings. These polyimide coatings which will be sold under the name Tetrimide.  Tetramer anticipates that the polymers developed in this project will have performance characteristics not currently available in fiber coatings and will enable operation at temperatures above 300 °C.

Tetrimide coatings have potential to impact a wide variety of markets. Down-hole fiber sensors with Tetrimide will proved improved temperature monitoring in ...

Image - SBIR and STTR

Tetramer Technologies has been awarded a Phase I Navy SBIR contract (N00014-14-P-1052)  to develop commercially attractive, thermoplastic optical polymers that have ultra-low scattering loss for use in high end optics. Because these polymers will have decreased light scattering through the polymer lens, optical devices that use them will improved imaging capabilities, adding value to Tetramer customers.

These materials, by increasing resolution and by reducing the size of the optical materials, have many ...

Tetramer has been awarded a DOE Phase II Grant (DE-FG02-12ER90414) to develop nanocomposite coating technologies. There is a need within the Global Safeguards community for tamper-indicating coatings of varying complexity for use in the verification and authentication of nuclear security documents, materials, and equipment; however, current commercial coatings for anti-tampering seals lack the sophistication necessary for quick, accurate, and reliable tamper detection. Tetramer has developed a proprietary family of coating technologies that ...
