PASADENCA, Calif. -- Rockley Photonics, a start-up focused on advanced silicon photonic-based solutions for next-generation data communication networks, today announced it has added significant new managerial/technical talent to its engineering and product development team in Pasadena, CA.

Thomas Schrans, Nathan Farrington, and Guomin Yu bring a wealth of experience to the Rockley Photonics team to enhance its capabilities in the design/development of high-speed integrated photonic solutions, along with the system-level implementation and deployment knowledge required for modern datacom architectures.
