Former JDSU Exec. Joins Chiral Board
Stan Lumish, PhD, former chief technology officer at JDS Uniphase Corp. (JDSU), has joined the board of Chiral Photonics Inc., a Pine Brook, N.J., maker of optical components, lasers and displays. JDSU is a provider of communications test and measurement solutions and optical products for the telecommunications industry. Lumish began his career at AT&T Bell Labs after receiving a PhD in electrical engineering from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1982. He held numerous management positions with AT&T Network Systems and Lucent Technologies, where he received the prestigious Bell Labs Fellow award for his work in dense wavelength division multiplexing systems. He joined JDS Uniphase in 2000 as vice president, network product applications and subsequently also led research and development for its transmission subsystems group, then was president of its optical layer group. Lumish is now a consultant to JDSU about intellectual property. Chiral Photonics recently received a US patent for its Helica TC tapered coupler device, released last year. “We believe this is a significant enabling technology for planar nanophotonics and in the field of high-index contrast photonics more generally,” said Victor Kopp, Chiral Photonics’ director of R&D. “In addition to the endface and evanescent coupling devices we are currently supplying, we plan to use this technology to introduce a passive alignment solution for board-to-board and chip-to-chip interconnects.”
- 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...
