SOMERSET, N.J., March 17 -- NanoOpto Corp. and Integrated Photonics Inc. announced today they are working on integrating nano-optics and nanomanufacturing with Integrated Photonics' technology to develop and grow high-performance magneto-optic garnet Faraday rotator crystals.
NanoOpto Corp. is applying proprietary nano-optics and nanomanufacturing technologies to design and manufacture optical components for systems and networks. Integrated Photonics, of Hillsborough, N.J., and Richardson, Texas, is a provider of Faraday rotators, thin-film polarizers, single crystal oxides and integrated devices for optical isolators and other optical components.
The companies will develop a new family of integrated passive optical components based on nanoscale polarization structures and nonreciprocal passive optical Faraday rotators. Product applications will include a monolithic isolator. The companies said the new integrated passive optical components will provide optical device designers with increased functionality, higher performance, greater component density and improved optical efficiency while lowering manufacturing cost and decreasing inventory requirements. These devices are used in many sophisticated communication systems, such as optical point-to-point trunk systems, optical subscriber loop networks, optical cable television systems and LAN systems.
NanoOpto and Integrated Photonics will be exhibiting at OFC 2003 (Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition) in Atlanta, Ga., March 25-27.
