Lumera Secures Million-Dollar Contract for Wideband Optical Modulators

BOTHELL, WA | Posted on March 20th, 2007

"This is further validation of the superiority of our electro-optic devices and materials and, along with other Lumera government contracts, directly parallels our roadmap to commercial products," said Tom Mino, Chief Executive Officer of Lumera. "Being chosen is recognition of our performance in meeting the technical and financial milestones defined in the contracts."

Lumera is developing high-performance modulators which enable a new generation of fiber-optic systems that are expected to deliver increased bandwidth at competitive costs and use lower power than current devices.
