Radiant Photonics introduces TOIC technology to speed installation of all-optical networks for metro markets

March 12, 2001
Mar. 12, 2001--Radiant Photonics, Inc. announced its Thermo Optical Integrated Circuit (TOIC) technology used to design, manufacture and deliver cost-effective, higher-performance components to build next-generation all-optical systems for metropolitan and short-haul networks.

Austin, Texas-based Radiant Photonics, Inc. announced its Thermo Optical Integrated Circuit (TOIC) technology used to design, manufacture and deliver cost-effective, higher-performance and rugged components to build next-generation all-optical systems for metropolitan and short-haul networks.

Radiant's TOIC technology is the result of extensive development. The company spent six years conducting optical research on 11 different projects for NASA as well as Boeing, General Electric and Honeywell.

According to Dr. Ray Chen, Radiant Photonics founder and chief technical officer, the TOIC platform will offer unique integration opportunities to optical system manufacturers. "For example, our TOIC-based digital switching and VOA technology can be combined to offer both digital and analog functionality on a single chip," Dr. Chen said.

With the TOIC technology as its platform, Radiant Photonics is focusing on the switching and transport segments of the metropolitan core and access markets and is producing a family of optical products that includes:

* Solid-state, all-optical switches

* Solid-state VOAs (variable optical attenuators)

* Dense, coarse, and multimode WDM (wavelength division multiplexers)

* OADMs (optical add/drop multiplexers)

Radiant Photonics will be exhibiting at Anaheim's OFC 2001 Conference, March 19-21, and will be located in Booth #1553.
