The market for infrared (IR) light sources is not new, but has evolved rapidly with the recent development of Solid-State Lighting (SSL). Initially developed for optical communication applications, LEDs and laser diodes started to be integrated into high-volume applications (like remote controls for IR LEDs or data centers for laser diodes…) in the 1980s/1990s. But it’s only recently, with the development of smartphones, that IR LEDs and laser diodes have come back to prominence. And now, the market is set for growth for the next 10 years as the automotive sector, among other emerging applications, is also implementing high-value functions using those light sources.

Finisar unveiled its first silicon photonics-based product, a 400-gigabit QSFP-DD DR4 module, at the recent ECOC event. The company also showed transceiver technology that simplifies the setting up of dense wavelength-division multiplexing (DWDM) links. Two 200-gigabit QSFP56 client-side modules and an extended reach 30km 400-gigabit eLR8 were also demonstrated by Finisar. A 64-gigabaud integrated tunable transmitter and receiver assembly (ITTRA) was used to send a 400-gigabit coherent wavelength.

The systems vendor is expanding its offerings to include WaveLogic modem chips and coherent optical modules. Ciena is developing its own coherent modules to sell to the telecom and datacom markets. The system vendor has set up the Optical Microsystems Division business unit to promote its WaveLogic coherent modem technology to the marketplace. Until now it has licensed its WaveLogic Ai digital signal processor (DSP) to module makers Lumentum, NeoPhotonics and Oclaro. But now it is planning to sell its own coherent modules.
