January 31, 2005 Lisle, IL -- Molex and KiloLambda Technologies have signed an agreement for collaboration in the development and marketing of optical power control technology and devices.

According to a press release, the project is based on KiloLambda's proprietary technology, which provides optical power limiting or "clamping" functionality in a small passive component package. In the collaboration, KiloLambda will develop the optical limiting materials technology while Molex will develop the product packaging, while also handling the marketing and sales of the final product.

According to the release, the project was evaluated by the BIRD Foundation, a U.S.-Israeli R&D support organization. BIRD's review included a technical evaluation by examiners from the American National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and from the Office of the Chief Scientist of the Israeli Ministry of Industry and Trade. Following BIRD's recommendation, the BIRD Foundation board of governors approved the project and a grant for $800,000.
