OEwaves is a leading developer of advanced technologies for commercial and military use, specializing in radar, communications, fiber optic sensors, LiDAR, atomic clocks, and test and measurement systems.

With our roots at its founding by scientists from Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), OEwaves has developed breakthrough products in microwave photonics. These include our advanced Opto-Electronic Oscillators (OEO) and ultra-high quality factor (Q) crystalline whispering gallery mode (WGM) micro-optical resonators.

The company boasts over 115 patents related to these core technologies, supporting its world-renowned engineering staff and leadership team.

OEwaves has received numerous awards, twice including the renowned SPIE Prism Award, as well as the Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award. OEWaves has been listed in the top 20 of IEEE’s Patent Power for semiconductor manufacturing.

An example of our advanced photonics breakthroughs are the ultra-narrow 10 Hz linewidth laser module products. These tiny optical WGM resonators enable OEwaves to produce small scale form factor ultra-low phase/frequency noise semiconductor lasers, suitable for volume manufacture.

The small mass of our WGM resonator allows for low power, and robust thermal stabilization lasers that are insensitive to vibration and shock. OEWaves’ resonators allow narrowing the linewidth of a suitable laser at any wavelength, permitting wavelength ranges not previously accessible with conventional techniques.

The ultra-narrow linewidth laser family consists of the following standard products:

Additionally, OEwaves’ Ultra-Narrow Laser Linewidth and Frequency Noise Analyzer System features automated measurement capable of testing ultra-low phase noise laser sources, without the complicated setup typically required to make such a narrow linewidth measurement - without requiring another low noise reference laser source. The complete system operates with ease, speed and precision, and features a simple graphic user interface via any PC, without requiring any additional test equipment.

OEWaves time of flightBased on a variety of crystalline and amorphous materials, OEWaves’ WGM micro-cavity allows our stand-alone WGM resonators to be used in laser stabilization and optical filtering applications, just a few milli-meters in diameter. These quality cavities are compatible with a wide range of wavelengths from UV to IR, for use in diverse applications requiring high performance laser and optical filters.
