Document Reports on Demands for Optical Component Manufacturers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
The introduction to a report titled "Optical Components Strategies and Forecasts to 2007" notes that optical component manufacturers are increasingly required to integrate components into single, compact modules and to rapidly manufacture newly designed and advanced components for communications equipment suppliers. Market-driving forces and the benefits of Internet protocol architecture, including packet switching, also are discussed.
With more than 100 tables and figures, the 360-page publication from Research and Markets Ltd. of Dublin, Ireland, profiles several companies, examining their acquisitions, systems, integration capabilities, technologies, revenues and strategies. It provides market and industry descriptions in such areas as integrated optics, active and passive components, and dense wavelength division multiplexing systems and architecture, and includes a segment on market opportunity analysis that addresses bandwidth management, wavelength monitoring, optical amplification and metropolitan networks.

integrated optics
A thin-film device containing miniature optical components connected via optical waveguides on a transparent dielectric substrate, whose lenses, detectors, filters, couplers and so forth perform operations analogous to those of integrated electronic circuits for switching, communications and logic.
optical component
One or more optical elements – typically cemented together - in an optical system that are treated as a single group; e.g., a beamsplitter, or a cemented doublet or triplet.
