Princeton Lightwave 'Raises the Bar'

CRANBURY, N.J. -- Princeton Lightwave, Inc. (PLI), a leading provider of high performance active components, has achieved a significant breakthrough in optical power levels, becoming the first company to announce that it has reached the 1-watt power level from a single narrow-stripe pump laser chip. This accomplishment positions PLI as the market leader in 1480-14xx pumps. Designed for long-haul optical network applications, PLI’s WavePower™ pump laser platform features high power with high stability and reliability. This enables longer transmission distances without optical regeneration, leading to more bandwidth at lower network costs.

“PLI has raised the bar for the industry with their record-breaking results,” said Tom Hausken, senior analyst at Strategies Unlimited. “The achievement suggests opportunities for reducing the parts count for both shared and conventional optical amplifier applications.”
