E2O Communications Inc., a provider of fiber-optic transmission components, has announced a breakthrough with its electrically pumped Long Wavelength Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (LW VCSEL) technology.

According to E2O, the technology is capable of generating laser wavelengths from 1270 nm to 1610 nm for LAN, metro, data communications and telecommunications applications. This is currently being designed into optical transceivers for production next year.

"E2O's development team has leveraged a conventional active materials system with proven reliability to develop the LW VCSEL," said Dr. Julian Cheng, head of the long wavelength VCSEL research and development team for E2O Communications. "This unique technology will allow E2O to supply LW VCSELs to cover all of the ITU defined CWDM and DWDM grid wavelengths for increased bandwidth in both the datacom and telecom markets."
