NeoPhotonics doubles PIC production capacity
NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE:NPTN), photonic integrated circuit (PIC) maker, is in the process of doubling capacity for production of narrow-linewidth tunable lasers using a proprietary packaging technology.
NeoPhotonics offers these lasers in an OIF MSA standard ITLA form factor. The products are compact and widely tunable laser assemblies designed to be optimized for narrow linewidth with up to 35mW launch power in the C band and 20mW in the L band. The products’ narrow linewidth and frequency stability are enabled by a NeoPhotonics phase-shifted DFB laser chip and a proprietary packaging technology, while the ITLA assembly also includes an integrated wavelength locker as well as industry standard electrical and firmware interfaces. The narrow linewidth tunable laser has been available to customers since April 2010 and has become one of the leading lasers used in coherent systems.
