'Marconi Optical Components' Debuts
At this week's Optical Fiber Conference (OFC) in Anaheim, California, the business will demonstrate its product portfolio, which includes wide tuning range and high power tunable lasers; Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) based 10Gbps and 40Gbps modulators; and Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers (EDFA). The new business will also introduce the Terabit Engine(TM), a breakthrough in optical components offering highly integrated optical functionality on a single chip.
"Through activities at its Caswell laboratories, Marconi has an impressive background in photonic research and development," said John S. Lively, Director, Optical Components for RHK, Inc. "The achievements so far should position Marconi Optical Components to compete very well at the high end of the optical components performance curve. Marconi should also benefit from its decades of experience in manufacturing electronic components, something few other new entrants to the optical components industry have."
