POET Technologies (PTK) is partnering with Liobate Technologies to incorporate advanced modulators onto POET’s optical engines for cloud and telecom applications.

The thin-film lithium niobate (TFLN) modulators being implemented are a co-development project focused on delivering and commercializing a POET 400/800Gps transmit and receive optical engine.

TFLN is known to capacitate high bandwidth, low insertion loss, nonlinear optical qualities, and is extremely reliable.

Dr. Suresh Venkatesan, CEO of POET Technologies, stated,

“Of all the materials currently under development for high-speed modulators, including monolithic silicon, indium phosphide and advanced polymers, we believe that TFLN offers the most promise for early commercial deployment and potential long-term success. “

The POET Optical platform is a hybrid integration technology that allows high-speed communication among all devices.

The company is pursuing multiple paths for light modulation, including silicon, TFLN-based electro-optic modulators, and directly modulated lasers (DML) which do not require a separate device. 

“Our goal is to match components to the superior optical and electrical performance characteristics of the POET Optical Interposer, enabling POET to introduce ground-breaking performance in optical engines and optical interposer-based photonic integrated circuits for high-speed transceivers and co-packaged optics applications,”

Lithium Niobate is known as the most reliable and low-cost substance used in modulators. However, due to its bulk and low power efficiency it has not been widely used in high-speed optical interconnects in cloud datacenters.

The use of TFLN is enabling new applications in millimetre-wave data communications, telecommunications, sensing and quantum computing.

POET Technologies Inc. (PTK) is down 3.70 per cent trading at $0.78 per share as of 10:55 a.m. EST.
