IPSCIO Record ID: 142207

License Grant
The Company has acquired specific product technology know-how related to light source driver, FBT Fiber Couplers, WIC and WBC, WDM attenuators and FBT attenuators.
License Property
Couplers are used to combine and/or split optical signals. We offer a wide variety of singlemode and multimode fused biconical couplers. A fused biconical coupler is made when the cores of two fibers are fused together. By precisely controlling the manufacturing process not only can different ratios of power from each fiber be controlled, but also the coupler can act as a WDM element by coupling light of one wavelength over one fiber and light of a separate wavelength over the other fiber.

WDM is used to separate or combine light of different wavelengths or colors, which increases capacity by enabling simultaneous transmission of data along numerous wavelengths on the same fiber optic cable.

Attenuators reduce the amplitude of a signal without distorting the waveform. A variable fiber optical attenuator is a component used to equalize the power between different WDM channels before being amplified by a fiber amplifier.

Field of Use
The Company design, manufacture and sell a comprehensive line of fiber optic components that enable communications equipment manufacturers to provide optical networking solutions for the rapidly growing metropolitan and access segments of the communications network.

IPSCIO Record ID: 26709

License Grant
The Company has a license agreement for the use and production of fiber Bragg Gratings.
License Property
A  fiber Bragg grating is a type of distributed Bragg reflector constructed in a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. This is achieved by adding a periodic variation to the refractive index of the fiber core. A fiber Bragg grating can therefore be used as an inline optical filter to block certain wavelengths, or as a wavelength-specific reflector.

IPSCIO Record ID: 1033

License Grant
The Licensee is responsible for paying royalties to the Licensor for the Licensed technology.
License Property
The technology relates to the manufacture of Bragg Gratings or compression-tuned fiber gratings for telecommunication applications. The Bragg Grating is basically a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. This is achieved by creating a periodic variation in the refractive index of the fiber core, which generates a wavelength specific dielectric mirror.  A fiber Bragg grating can be used as an inline optical filter to block certain wavelengths, or as a wavelength-specific reflector.

IPSCIO Record ID: 27483

License Grant

IPSCIO Record ID: 156059

License Grant
The Japanese Licensor grants a non-exclusive and non-transferable license, without the right to sublicense, under Licensed Patents to make or have made Licensed products and to use, lease, sell, offer to sell, import or otherwise dispose of in Licensed Territories.
License Property
The Licensed products are
(1) Wavelength multiplexer/demultiplexer devices which consist of the VIPA, or virtually imaged phased array, element.
(2) Chromatic dispersion compensator devices which consist of the VIPA element and a mirror. and the associated patents and patent applications.

Virtually Imaged Phased Array (VIPA) Technology. Chromatic dispersion occurs because different wavelengths of optical signals transmitted over a single optical fiber travel at different speeds. Dispersion deteriorates the quality of optical signals in high bit-rate transmission systems. The farther the optical signal travels, the more it gets distorted. Dispersion typically limits high bit-rate optical signal transmission to about 100 kilometers.

The technology allows one single product to function across multiple wavelength channels and can compensate, or correct for, different levels of chromatic dispersion. The VIPA technology incorporated in licensee's PowerShaper(TM) Dispersion Management Processors can extend optical transmissions substantially without electrical regeneration of the signal, which results in high network bandwidth efficiency and lower cost.

Field of Use
Licensee is in the semiconductor industry.
