Photonics

West Coast fiber-optic network and data center infrastructure provider Wilcon says it will expand is Los Angeles fiber footprint with an eye toward emerging small cell wireless requirements. Wilcon says the new fiber-optic cable will serve hundreds of small cell sites across downtown Los Angeles, including the Central Business District, Fashion District, Koreatown, and Chinatown.

Lightwave Logic, which is taking a polymer-based approach to photonic integration, says that it has successfully developed a prototype all-organic polymer ridge waveguide intensity modulator based on a Mach-Zehnder design. The modulator will support 10-Gbps applications, although the company has set its sights on 25 Gbps.

Embedded optical modules (EOMs) have supported supercomputers, core routers, and other applications since 2000; active optical cables (AOCs) arrived seven years later to offer a low-cost alternative to pluggable modules, particularly in high-performance computing (HPC) clusters. Despite being newer to the scene, AOC sales should prove more consistently strong over the next five years than those of EOMs, according to a new forecast from LightCounting.

Using “dark lattice modes,” researchers at Aalto University have created a plasmonic nanolaser that operates at visible light frequencies.Researchers at Aalto University have made an array of nanoparticles combined with dye molecules to act as a tiny laser. The lasing occurs in a dark mode and the laser light leaks out from the edges of the array. Courtesy of Antti Paraoanu.

Silicon photonics has made considerable progress in a relatively short time to emerge as an important systems technology whose time has come. Just over a decade ago the likes of Intel and IBM were announcing performance records for the basic silicon photonics building blocks -- modulators and detectors -- used to make optical devices. Now, companies are shipping complex silicon photonics-based integrated circuits as part of their products.

• The company has been active for two and a half years and has products already deployed
• A privately-owned silicon photonics company that is already shipping products has dropped its state of secrecy to announce itself. Elenion Technologies is owned by Marlin Equity Partners, the investment firm that also owns systems vendor, Coriant.
