Oclaro Achieves High-Volume Production of 400G/Lambda Lithium Niobate Modulator

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), a provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, has announced volume production of its lithium niobate (LiNbO3) Polarization Multiplexed Quad Mach-Zehnder (PM-QMZ) modulators, the company said.

These new modulators enable data rates up to 400G on a single wavelength, allowing customers to quickly and cost effectively transition to faster network architectures for today´s growing bandwidth demands.

The Oclaro single carrier PM-QMZ lithium niobate external modulator is a high electro-optic bandwidth PM-QMZ device that integrates into a hermetic package an input beam splitter, four parallel Mach-Zehnder modulators configured for I-Q modulation, a polarization combiner, and monitor photodiodes for power and bias control.

Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCLR), is a provider of optical components and modules for the long-haul, metro and data center markets. Leveraging more than three decades of laser technology innovation and photonics integration, Oclaro provides differentiated solutions for optical networks and high-speed interconnects driving the next wave of streaming video, cloud computing, application virtualization and other bandwidth-intensive and high-speed applications.
