  • Laser Company Secures Flextronics Photonics

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2006
Semiconductor laser supplier nLight Corp. has acquired the assets of Flextronics Photonics PPT Inc. of Hillsboro, Ore., adding fiber-coupled and hybrid microelectronic products to its portfolio. The Vancouver, Wash., company plans to integrate the technology with its high-power and brightness diodes in ITAR-compliant manufacturing facilities.

The combined technologies are expected to have applications for the US Department of Defense in the areas of illumination, laser communications, laser-initiated ordnance and laser-based measurement systems.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

semiconductor laser
A semiconductor material which is designed and grown for the efficient production of short wavelength stimulated emission through high gain as well as low internal losses. Materials with band gap energies which emit radiation efficiently within the desired wavelength region are used. Diodes may emit vertically in relation to the laser material junction in a VCSEL configuration or horizontally in an edge emitting configuration. Synonymous with laser diode.  Sometimes used...
