April 21, 2006, Tokyo, Japan--Fujitsu Ltd. (www.fujitsu.com) and Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (www.mitsui.co.jp) announced that they have established a new optical device venture, QD Laser, Inc. (QDL), leveraging venture capital funding from both companies and Fujitsu's quantum dot laser technology.

Utilizing quantum dot semiconductor crystallization technology developed thus far by Fujitsu, and laser design and process technologies, QDL will offer quantum dot lasers to the optical telecommunication light source market for use in optical access and optical local area networks within buildings. The new company aims to leverage the superior performance of its technologies to expand its share in the market and become the leader in the industry.

By achieving commercialization of its world-class quantum dot laser technology through the growth of QDL, Fujitsu expects that in addition to its current leading share of the optical transmission device markets in the United States and Japan, that Fujitsu will also be able to enhance its competitiveness in the optical access market, for which full-fledged global expansion is anticipated. In addition to providing technical support through joint research, Fujitsu will also offer business management support. Fujitsu's capital investment to QDL will be made through a corporate venture capital fund managed by Fujitsu.
