ILX Lightwave Donates Instruments to University
BOZEMAN, Mont., March 9, 2011 — ILX Lightwave Corp. announced the donation of $10,000 worth of ultralow-noise laser diode instrumentation to the University of Illinois to enhance its experimental research.
Dr. Lynford Goddard, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, will use the equipment to study a novel family of reflective photonic devices based on a distributed Bragg reflector in a microring resonator.
The laser diode instrumentation company donated an ultralow-noise laser diode current source, temperature controller and laser diode mounts.
Over the past five years, ILX Lightwave has donated $20,000 in equipment annually to colleges and universities. It has begun accepting applications for the 2012 award.
