Integrated Optics Has Implemented The Project for Setting up the Integrated Optoelectronics Laboratory
In August, 2015 Integrated Optics has finished
implementing a two-year project called "The Setting up of an Integrated
Optoelectronics Laboratory" which has been supported by European Cohesion Fund
and implemented under the measure "Intellect LT+" - support means of the
Operational Programme for Economy Growth 2007-2013, the aim of which is to
increase investment into R&D in the private sector. The total budget
allocated for this project was more than 250 thousand euros, of which
Integrated Optics contributed approximately 30 percent.
The expanded R&D base contributes to development and improvement of three main product groups: the series of low power CW "MatchBox" lasers that feature low output power and variety of wavelengths, a low jitter ultrafast pulse laser with the code name "BlackBox" and its modifications. The development of the "BlackBox" laser was also supported by the European Cohesion Fund in another project under the measure "Intellect LT", performed in parallel.
These two projects have significantly contributed to the company’s competitiveness. Prototypes developed in the newly established laboratory spaces are going to be commercialized by selling produced lasers and licensing related intellectual property rights.
