BOTHELL, Wash., Nov. 25 -- Optical networking components developer Lumera Corp., a subsidiary of Microvision Inc., announced it has been awarded a US government contract extension for about $1 million to continue development of electro-optic polymer materials for the fabrication of prototype wideband optical modulators.
Lumera said it is developing active and passive components for optical networks that will deliver increased bandwidth and require less power than current devices. The company said its component development is based on proprietary electro-optic polymer materials it developed with its research partners at the University of Washington. This second stage of the contract is scheduled for completion within 11 months.
