  • Oki, Kotura to Collaborate on Components
Feb 2008
A 10 Gb/s receiver based on VOA-APD (variable optical attenuator-avalanche photodiode) technology for metropolitan area network applications will be the first product resulting from a collaboration between Oki Optical Components and Kotura Inc., the companies announced recently. Oki, a supplier of optical and integrated circuit components for Ethernet and telecommunication applications, and Kotura, a provider of silicon photonic components, said the silicon photonics VOA enables the 10-Gb receiver, which will be introduced later this year, to support a variety of new applications. Kotura's components are used in communications, computing, sensing and detection.

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...
