Arbor Photonics obtains exclusive license for optical fiber from university

Arbor Photonics has signed an exclusive license agreement for chirally-coupled core optical fiber with the U. of Michigan. The agreement grants Arbor Photonics rights to commercialize the fiber and devices enabled by the innovative design for lasers, optical amplifiers and laser beam delivery.

The chirally-coupled core concept, dubbed "CCC" or "3C" fiber, is a revolutionary type of optical fiber that utilizes an internal structure to produce single spatial mode output from very large mode area fibers, and was invented by Prof. Almantas Galvanauskas at the University of Michigan Center for Ultrafast Optical Science.

The technology provides the basis for a breakthrough in laser performance that will be exploited by Arbor Photonics to produce high power, short pulsed, single mode fiber lasers bringing significant benefits to laser applications in microelectronics, solar cell manufacturing and defense.

According to Arbor Photonics CEO, Philip Amaya, "We believe that 3C fiber technology will enable fiber lasers with unprecedented performance in terms of average power, peak power and brightness. Feedback from end users and OEMs in microelectronics and solar cell manufacturing indicates that higher average power, short pulsed lasers are needed to improve manufacturing cycle time and reduce production costs."
