JDSU optical coatings processes improve light-sensing capability for consumer electronics

Milpitas, CA--JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU and TSX: JDU) announced new microlithography or patterning processes for JDSU optical coatings that contribute to improved light sensing intelligence in a wide variety of consumer electronic products.

Coatings patterned with new JDSU processes are layered onto optical sensors that allow products to sense and adjust according to ambient light conditions. End products include smart phones with lighted screens that fade out when pressed to a caller’s ear and dashboard displays in automobiles that adjust the intensity of lighting according to external conditions.

"There is a continued need to feed computer chips with more information so that end products can better recognize and respond to what is happening in the external environment," said Markus Bilger, product manager for Custom Optics at JDSU. "New JDSU patterning processes provide manufacturers with a high performance and low cost solution that contribute to the improved intelligence of many consumer electronics products."

JDSU optical coatings are patterned on 200 millimeter wafers that let manufacturers in the optoelectronics and imaging industries create smaller products that have more layers of functionality embedded within optical coatings at a lower total cost.

To find out more about JDSU optical coatings and other technologies, please visit Booth #1615 at Photonics West at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA from January 25-27, 2011.
