Fujitsu Ltd. and Mitsui & Co. Ltd.,
both in Tokyo, have established QD Laser Inc., an optical device venture. Leveraging
capital from both companies and quantum dot laser technology from Fujitsu, the newly
formed company will offer quantum dot lasers to the telecommunications light source
market. Quantum dot lasers feature temperature-independent operation, low power
consumption, long-distance transmission and high speed. The companies anticipate
that the lasers will become a core technology for telecommunications.
