MUNICH - Lucent Technologies (NYSE: LU) Microelectronics Group today announced the fiber-optic industry's first 20-channel continuous wave (CW) tunable laser module for both short- and long-haul, high-speed optical networking systems. The device offers twice as many tunable channels as Lucent's current generation of tunable transmitters.

Based on tunable electroabsorptive modulated laser (EML) technology pioneered at Bell Labs, the new CW20P laser module combines numerous electrical and optoelectronic components, including a patented wavelength locker for increased stability, all in one package. This integration enables manufacturers of high-speed optical networking systems to cut their costs and component inventories, while reducing the time it takes to bring new products to market.
