Princeton Lightwave begins volume production for InP-based 1480-14xx pump laser

Aug. 8, 2001--The added production capacity from the two AIXTRON epitaxial materials growth systems will enable PLI to satisfy demand for its WavePower high-performance EDFA and Raman pump modules, WaveRider Broadband GainChips, and WaveHarp tunable distributed-feedback (DFB) semiconductor laser modules.

During the first quarter of this year, AIXTRON AG, a producer of MOCVD systems, delivered two model AIX-2400G3 MOCVD reactors to Princeton Lightwave, Inc. (PLI), located in Cranbury, New Jersey. PLI is a supplier of high-performance active component solutions for the optical networking industry. The added production capacity from the two AIXTRON epitaxial materials growth systems will enable PLI to satisfy demand for its WavePower high-performance EDFA and Raman pump modules, WaveRider Broadband GainChips, and WaveHarp tunable distributed-feedback (DFB) semiconductor laser modules.

In April, 2001, PLI reached the 1-watt power level with a single narrow-stripe pump laser chip grown in an AIX 200/4 MOCVD reactor. Based on unique chip level designs, the WaveHarp, WaveRider, and WavePower Series offer wavelength stability, reliability, and throughput at top power levels.
