May 2007
Champert.jpgZurich, Switzerland-based Bookham Inc., a provider of optical components, modules and subsystems, announced the appointment of Pierre Champert, PhD, as technical sales manager of its high-power laser diode business unit. Champert's appointment will advance business growth across Europe, with a particular focus on France, Bookham said. "With over 10 years' experience in solid-state and fiber laser technologies, Pierre will prove invaluable in continuing our success," said Gunnar Stolze, Bookham's European sales director of industrial products. Prior to joining the company, Champert contributed to Keopsys SA's business development in Europe. Bookham said it is adapting and diversifying its high-power laser diodes, originally developed for telecommunications networks, for applications including industrial, medical, display, analytical, printing, aerospace and defense.

A two-electrode device with an anode and a cathode that passes current in only one direction. It may be designed as an electron tube or as a semiconductor device.
optical component
One or more optical elements – typically cemented together - in an optical system that are treated as a single group; e.g., a beamsplitter, or a cemented doublet or triplet.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
