Tunable Photonics Raises $7M

PASADENA, Calif. -- Tunable Photonics Corporation announced today that it has closed its Series A round of financing with a total of $7 million in venture capital financing. Blueprint Ventures of San Francisco, CA and Forrest, Binkley and Brown of Newport Beach, CA each invested $3 million, with The United Company of Bristol, VA providing $1 million.

Tunable Photonics produces components for fiber optic communications. Its products include a wavelength locker and wavelength mapper for widely tunable lasers which are expected to displace fixed wavelength lasers in the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) market. Tunable Photonics' technology is protected by several pending patents.

"Active components for tunable lasers will play a key role in the build-out of the optical networks of tomorrow", says Christopher Kersey, a partner at Blueprint Ventures. “Tunable Photonics is a highly energized, cutting-edge technology company with a world-class team of laser experts who will be on the forefront of developing next-generation optical components.”
