Almae to co-develop laser modules based on POET’s optical interposer platform for high-speed datacoms (from

POET Technologies Inc of Toronto, Canada and San Jose, CA, USA — a designer and manufacturer of optoelectronic devices, including light sources, passive waveguides and photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for the sensing and datacom markets — has executed an agreement for the co-development of transmit device solutions with photonic product maker Almae Technologies SAS of Marcoussis, France, a spin-off from III-V Lab (the joint Nokia, Thales and CEA-Leti industrial research laboratory).

Almae is majority-owned by an affiliate of Accelink Technologies Co Ltd of Wuhan, China (a manufacturer of optical components and subsystems for the datacom, telecom and network access markets), which in March entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with POET for the co-development of transceivers for 100/400G markets as well as low-cost single-channel (10/25G) products for telecom applications.
