- Brian Mink to Lead Operations at Reflex Photonics
Reflex Photonics, a Mountain View, Calif.-based developer of extreme high-speed optical connectivity products for semiconductor packaging and data transfer applications, announced it has hired Brian Mink as its director of operations. Most recently, Mink was president of Innovator Electronic Manufacturing Services at Lyrtech Signal Processing. He also served as the director of quality control, materials and finance for Innovator Electronic Assembly (IEA), ultimately becoming the company's president and CEO (IEA was acquired by Lyrtech in May 2006). Mink spent five years as materials and MIS manager at microelectronic circuits packaging company CeraTel Microelectronics.

- Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
- A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
- 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...
