BOSTON, Feb. 25 -- The Photonics Center at Boston University
Has opened its Integrated Optics Laboratory. According to the Center, the mission of the Integrated Optics Laboratory is to facilitate hybrid integration, device characterization, and measurement of active and passive photonics devices for industrial collaboration and faculty research. The new 2,400-square-foot laboratory, complete with a 400-square-foot Class 100 clean-room, is expected to see significant activity in the development of smart substrates and low-cost hybrid optical component integration.
"This state-of-the-art lab strengthens the already sophisticated product prototyping capabilities of the Photonics Center," said Don Fraser, Director of the Photonics Center. "Each new lab that we add to our suite of product prototyping laboratories increases the potential for our Business Accelerator companies and our corporate partners to succeed."
Agilent Technologies was a major sponsor for equipping the new laboratory. The equipment, which includes the latest suite of Agilent's 10 GHz optical test and measurement solutions, will be accessible to the Center's Business Accelerator companies and partners focusing on the development of optical technology products.
