- Sam Mitani Joins Phyworks as Business Development Director
Fabless semiconductor company Phyworks Ltd. of Bristol, England, announced today it has hired Sam Mitani as director of business development. Mitani, who will be based in California, will focus on applications for 10-G electronic dispersion compensation and clock data recovery integrated circuits. He joins Phyworks from optical transceivers and components maker Picolight of Louisville, Colo., where he was West Coast sales director. He has more than 15 years of high-level experience in optical communication component sales, having previously worked for Network Elements, Oplink, Tyco and Photon. Mitani earned his BS in engineering from the University of Texas.
- A quantum of electromagnetic energy of a single mode; i.e., a single wavelength, direction and polarization. As a unit of energy, each photon equals hn, h being Planck's constant and n, the frequency of the propagating electromagnetic wave. The momentum of the photon in the direction of propagation is hn/c, c being the speed 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...
