John Barton Hired as Novera Optics CEO
Nov 2007
Novera Optics of Santa Clara, Calif., a provider of optical access solutions for FTTx (fiber to the x) applications, announced that it has hired John Barton as CEO. Barton, who has extensive senior management and executive-level experience in the optical electronics market, comes to Novera Optics from Flextronics, where he served as vice president and general manager. Before that, Barton served as chief operating officer and then president and CEO at Wave Optics Inc., an optical components and subcomponents company. As president, he led the company from a 40-person R&D-centric organization through a strategy shift to a 425-person design and manufacturing organization. Barton holds a BS in physics and a BS in mathematics from the University of California, Irvine.

That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
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...
wave optics
Also referred to as physical optics – the area of optics in which the wave nature of light is essential when defining its propagation.  To exploit the wave phenomena of light, one must interact light with objects approximate in size to that of the wavelength of the light being used. The principles of optical interference and diffraction are based off of the wave theory of light and can be observed every day in nature.
