With the fast expansion in telecommunication and information
technology there is an urgent need for a new class of devices with
much better performance and applicable up to 100Gbps and more.
Our company (Photonics) is offering a new class of fiber optic devices,
specifically, EO modulators, EO switches, tunable couplers, and
tunable DWD," capable of handling the market ever-increased
bandwidth, in a very high speed "speed of light". The developed devices
overcome the signal weakness and/or the polarization dependent exist in
most available devices. The technology is based on "On-Fiber" design, which
means building the device directly on the optical fiber core, by replacing the
fiber passive cladding with multilayer active materials. One of these layers is
an advance electrooptic polymer. Thus, ordinary optical fiber can be used as
a device as well as the transmission link, leading to All-Fiber Networks.
There will be no need to cut the fiber for inserting an active device into the
communication network, as with integrated optics devices. This newly
developed technology eliminates the polarization dependent and the
coupling problems exist in most today’s networks. Also, the tunable
DWDM has a huge bandwidth to replace all the 64 individual DWDM by a
single tunable DWDM in GPON Networks.
In addition, the developed devices have better technical performance at a
much lower cost. Our technology marks the beginning of a new era in
telecommunications, offering speeds that can exceed 140Gbps and allowing
tremendous bandwidth. The developed technology is ready for 5G
The manufacturing know-how has been developed, and demonstration
prototypes have been manufactured and successfully tested. The developed
fiber optic Devices can be used in almost every telecommunication link.
market size is huge and expected to reach several billion USD in 5-10 years.
