Kopin Expands Taunton Plant
Aug 2007
Microdisplay maker Kopin Corp. said it plans to enlarge its production facility in Taunton, Mass., to support demand for its display and heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) products. The announcement was made during a ceremony at its Taunton headquarters during which the company was awarded a $3 million state development grant. John C.C. Fan, Kopin president and CEO, said the grant is a "continuation of our strategy which includes federal, state and Kopin resources and revenues to develop leading-edge display products for use in consumer and military applications." It will be used to build cleanroom facilities, make infrastructure improvements and to create a job training program; Kopin also said it expects to increase its work force over the next five years. The expansion is expected to be completed later this year.

A transmissive, reflective or emissive high-resolution display that typically measures 1 cm diagonally, and whose use requires magnifying optics to project a highly magnified image on a surface for the image to be observed by the viewer.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
