Oclaro to highlight entry into new markets at Photonics West

At next week’s Photonics West 2011 event in San Francisco (22–27 January), optical component, module and subsystem maker Oclaro Inc of San Jose, CA, USA is presenting six technical papers and announcing new laser-based products and market expansion plans, highlighting its execution of a strategy to leverage its manufacturing operations to expand into adjacent markets.

“This year’s Photonics West marks a significant milestone where we begin to see the successful results from our continued investment in technology, R&D and manufacturing operations, as well as strategic investments,” says executive VP & division manager Yves Le Maitre. “Through our continued execution and a focus on technology innovation, Oclaro has transformed itself into a global manufacturing leader that can quickly meet the needs of new markets, such as the consumer space, that require high volume, low cost and exceptional reliability,” he adds.

Of several new product announcements being made both before and during Photonics West, some feature technology originally developed in the telecom space that is now being leveraged across new and adjacent high-growth markets, such as consumer electronics, medical and industrial lasers. In addition, Oclaro will be making an announcement regarding the success of its VCSEL product line.

During Photonics West, Oclaro will be presenting six technical papers at the associated symposia BIOS and LASE 2011:

  • ‘Automated Assembly Processes for High-Power Single Emitter Diode Lasers’, 23 January (4:50–5:10pm);
  • ‘Bright Laser Source with High-Power Single Mode Emitting Diode Laser Stacked Array Assembly and Fiber Coupling’, 24 January (11:40am–12:00pm);
  • ‘Compact Intracavity Frequency Doubled Diode Laser at 465nm’, 25 January (6:00–7:30pm);
  • ‘Versatile 1 W Narrow Band 976 nm Light Source’ 26 January (11:40am–12:00pm);
  • ‘Miniaturized High-Power Er:YAG Solid State Laser Pumped by a Single Laser Diode Bar’, 26 January (2:50–3:10pm);
  • ‘Low-Cost High-Reliability 830nm Single Mode Lasers for Consumer Electronics and CtP Applications’, 27 January (9:40–10:00am).
