  • JDSU Sells Holographic Security Line
Oct 2012
MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 — JDSU will sell its holographic security business to anti-counterfeiting solutions provider OpSec Security Inc. of Lancaster, Pa., the company announced recently. Specific terms of the deal were not disclosed.

JDSU serves the anti-counterfeiting market through its advanced security pigments, thread substrates and printed features for the currency, pharmaceutical and consumer electronic segments. Its holographic security product line primarily addresses the transaction card market segment and generates approximately $5 million per quarter.

The transaction, which is expected to close in late December, will help JDSU to focus on innovation in its core anti-counterfeiting markets, the company said.

The optical recording of the object wave formed by the resulting interference pattern of two mutually coherent component light beams. In the holographic process, a coherent beam first is split into two component beams, one of which irradiates the object, the second of which irradiates a recording medium. The diffraction or scattering of the first wave by the object forms the object wave that proceeds to and interferes with the second coherent beam, or reference wave at the medium. The resulting...
