Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Alight Technologies of Copenhagen, Denmark, is working with Philips Technologie ULM Photonics of Ulm, Germany, for the volume manufacturing of its 1300-nm PBG-VCSELs (photonic bandgap- vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers). Alight currently has a high speed 1300-nm photonic bandgap VCSEL under development for sampling later this year. Philips is a volume manufacturer of high-speed multimode VCSELs at 850 nm as well as of single-mode VCSELs for noncommunication applications. Alight initially will target applications such as 10 Gigabit Ethernet LR/LRM and up to 10-km links for 8-Gb/s fiber channels.

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...
