OEwaves was founded in 2000 and has maintained an Intellectual Property Portfolio of over 124 cases and has received numerous awards, including two prestigious SPIE Prism Awards, as well as the Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award.  The company has been ranked in the top 20 of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Semiconductor Manufacturing Patent Power.

OEwaves’ laser and optoelectronic oscillator (OEO) products are based on our proprietary, ultra-high-quality (Q) factor crystalline whispering gallery mode (WGM) micro-optical resonators.  To complement the high performance of our innovative laser and OEO products, we have developed high performance optical and RF test measurement systems that feature extremely low-noise floors and automated operation.
HI-Q™ Lasers
OEWaves 2-mircon laser

OEwaves’ HI-Q™ Laser moduleis in a compact form factor, with ultra-narrow linewidth (<100 Hz) and extremely low phase/frequency noise. Suitable for LIDAR, metrology, spectroscopy, quantum, atomic clocks, quantum computing, and coherent communication tasks. OEwaves offers 1-Micron, 1.5-Micron, 2-Micron, and custom wavelength lasers from 370 nm to 4500 nm (near-UV to the mid-IR).

HI-Q™ Test Measurement Systems - Optical and RF
OEWaves TS optical test system laptop master

OEwaves’ HI-Q™ Test Measurement Systems offer simple, automated measurement of phase noise (RF) and linewidth/frequency noise (optical) without requiring other reference sources. The complete system operates with ease, performance (low-noise floor), speed, precision, and a simple graphical user interface. The Test Measurement Systems come with RF or Optical measurement capabilities.

OEWaves Hi Q OEO micro coin

OEwaves’ patented HI-Q™ Opto-Electric Oscillators (OEOs) produce spectrally-pure microwave and mm-wave signals using an opto-electronic feedback loop. The versatile scheme allows utilization of optical components for low loss and small size. It is also inherently less sensitive to vibration and acceleration and provides the same low-spectral purity at all RF frequencies (microwave to mm).

HI-Q™ Resonators
OEWaves micro resonator

OEWaves’ HI-Q™ WGM Resonator with >1010 demonstrated optical quality factor is the key enabler for ultra-low-phase/frequency noise and narrow linewidth lasers and optical filtering applications. The resonator is very small, robust, and insensitive to vibration and shock. It is compatible with a wide range of wavelengths from UV to IR. OEwaves offers Bare and Packaged Resonators to customers requiring high-performance lasers, optical filters, and RF/microwave applications.
