  • Zecotek Signs Deal with Japanese Distributor
Jul 2008
Zecotek Photonics of Vancouver, British Columbia, a photonics technology company, has signed a distribution agreement with TEM Inc., a Japanese distributor of laser and electro-optical products. The agreements cover the distribution of Zecotek’s fiber and solid-state lasers, MAPD photodetectors, RFO vanadate crystals and patented LFS scintillation material in Japan. TEM will work within Zecotek's existing manufacturing agreement with Fujikura. Under the laser distribution agreement with Zecotek, TEM has commitments to prepurchase products including its green fiber lasers for marketing to its major OEM customers. The distribution agreements were signed by Zecotek Laser Systems and Zecotek Imaging Systems.

fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
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...
solid-state laser
A laser using a transparent substance (crystalline or glass) as the active medium, doped to provide the energy states necessary for lasing. The pumping mechanism is the radiation from a powerful light source, such as a flash lamp. The ruby and Nd:YAG lasers are solid-state lasers.
