Oclaro Inc.

Jan 2013
Optoelectronic components maker Oclaro Inc. is selling its Santa Rosa, Calif.-based thin-film filter business to Saxonburg, Pa.-based II-VI Inc. subsidiary Photop Technologies. Under the $27 million cash deal, Oclaro also will sell its interleaver product line to Photop Koncent Inc., another II-VI subsidiary. The transactions were expected to close in December 2012.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
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...
thin film
A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
