  • Lumera to Develop Polymer Devices for DARPA
Mar 2008
Photonic communications company Lumera Corp. of Bothell, Wash. announced that it has been awarded a DARPA Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract to design and fabricate electro-optic polymer devices. The initial contract amount is $98,933, but the company could receive a subsequent contract of approximately $750,000 if certain milestones are met, Lumera said. "The final goal and end product of the contract will be to economically produce high bandwidth, small chip, stable, low voltage, low loss, ultralinear high-EO (electro-optic) -coefficient polymer directional coupler modulators," said Raluca Dinu, PhD, vice president, Electro-Optic unit.

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...
A material whose molecular structure consists of long chains made up by the repetition of many (usually thousands) of similar groups of atoms.
