21 May 2004 Singapore -- DenseLight Semiconductors says its superluminescent LED (SLED) has been deployed in optical networks carrying revenue-generating traffic. The company says their device is the only SLED accepted for deployment in carrier-class optical networking equipment.
"This historical event signifies the acceptance of SLEDs, and of DenseLight, by Tier I carriers worldwide. DenseLight began volume shipment of SLED products last year and recently secured a volume purchase agreement from a key customer," observed Dr. Yee Loy Lam, CEO of DenseLight.
The DenseLight SLED is the only Telcordia-qualified SLED in the industry. The SLEDs also have found use in non-telecom market segments such as defense, biomedical diagnostics, spectroscopy, and fiber sensors.
"Customers prefer our SLED today for its superior performance, and want to be assured that these features are stable over time. We have convincingly demonstrated long-term stability of all these spectral features in our SLEDs to exceed customer expectations." commented Dr. Sunil B. Phatak, vice president of technical marketing.
