March 16, 2006 White Plains, NY -- Prima Luci, a designer of photonic optical components, announced that it will sell its Intellectual Property (IP) patent portfolio. The patents include a method for redirecting light pulses within fiber-optic strands such as to allow system manufactures and carriers to realize "substantial savings" in capex and opex.

"We are the first and only company that has patented the 'Photonic Transistor' which does not require light pulses to be converted, altered, or buffered in any way and uses the light's own properties to control itself intelligently," states Frank Coloccia, co-founder and chairman of Prima Luci.

Designed for both very short range ("chip-to-chip") and ultra-long-haul communications requirements, the company's technologies include optical packet router, cross connect, and add/drop devices, optical logic gates, wavelength conversion, ultra-fast 1x2 switches, CD and PMD dispersion compensation, secured PONs, SNR enhancers, and fast modulators.

"We have accomplished what we set out to do, which was to amass an unprecedented patent portfolio that impacts the optical and photonics industries," says Coloccia.
