Mobius Photonics licenses Harvard UV laser technology

Jan. 3, 2008
January 3, 2007, Santa Clara, CA--Mobuis Photonics has agreed to exclusively license a patent from Harvard on ultraviolet laser technology.

January 3, 2007, Santa Clara, CA--Mobius Photonics Inc. has announced that it has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) regarding United States patent #5,745,284. The patent is based on the pioneering work of Lew Goldberg, Dahv Kliner, and Jeffrey Koplow. It broadly covers ultraviolet (UV) laser sources based on the harmonic wavelength conversion of the output of a seeded amplifier, particularly a fiber amplifier.

Dr. Laura Smoliar, CEO of Mobius Photonics, Inc., said, "Because of the telecom bubble, the technology described in this patent lay dormant for years, but it is now commercially viable. Mobius has implemented it in products that allow laser-based manufacturers to meet the demands of higher throughput, higher quality, smaller feature size, and more compact packaging. Mobius delivers commercial light sources, including UV sources, based on fiber amplifiers. Acquisition of an exclusive license to this patent enhances the value of Mobius products and increases our customers' competitive advantage in the marketplace."

"We are pleased to reach this licensing agreement with Mobius Photonics," stated Alan Gordon, of the Office of Technology Development, Harvard University. "Our agreement with Mobius is aligned with our goal of fostering commercialization of U.S.-government-funded research."

Mobius Photonics focusses on laser sources based on a pulsed master-oscillator, fiber-power-amplifier (MOFPA) architecture. Current products feature both fundamental (IR) and harmonically wavelength converted (green and UV) outputs. Applications for these laser sources include wafer singulation, material processing, semiconductor inspection and repair, via drilling, and medical therapy.
