PSI-TEC Perkinamine-NR Molecule Exhibits Broadband Sensitivity; Material Testing Exceeds Expectations, Initiates Commercial Growth Phase
Electro-optic (EO) performance tests conducted by renowned PSI-TEC scientist, Dr. C.C. Teng, indicated a r33 figure of merit at 1550nm to be approximately seven times better than the previously best available polymer materials (e.g. CLD). The company recently reported r33 performance at 1300nm to be approximately two times better than the previously best available materials and validated the fundamental theories of Aromatic Gain principles on which the company was formed.
“The exceptional performance demonstrated by PSI-TEC's materials is the confirmation we needed to initiate our commercial growth phase -- including the development of economically viable 40Gb/s optical module technology”
"The significant benefit of having operational sensitivities this far out in the infra-red spectrum is that longer wavelengths allow better performance at lower energy levels. This means devices could be made smaller, faster and much more energy-efficient than traditional polymer materials (that roll-off around 800nm) -- attributes especially important to battery-operated devices, reducing aerospace payload weights, or high-circuit-density applications. It also potentially opens the door to applications like bio-imaging, OICs, and optical computing," said Frederick Goetz Jr., PSI-TEC president.
"The exceptional performance demonstrated by PSI-TEC's materials is the confirmation we needed to initiate our commercial growth phase -- including the development of economically viable 40Gb/s optical module technology," explained Ron Genova, CEO. "40Gb/s are becoming increasingly important to alleviate Internet traffic congestion in routers, switches, and backbones -- a situation that will become exacerbated by the widespread deployment of fiber-to-residential and SOHO markets. Momentum is also building for the eventual conversion of the public switched telephone network to Internet Protocol (IP) which will also drive higher speeds. I believe we are in the early stages of a major migration from 10Gb/s to 40Gb/s and I expect PSI-TEC's technology will intersect nicely with these emerging opportunities."
PSI-TEC's molecularly engineered organic materials are the basis of the company's disruptive technology platform. The resolution of the stability issue in material design, together with exceptional optical performance and a high-yield material synthesis process represents the potential to remove the final hurdle to the broad proliferation of low-cost organic EO materials and components for numerous applications. Based on promising results, the company recently delivered their material to a leading university that has close ties to government and military commerce. These tests will independently confirm the revolutionary material and their internal conclusions.
PSI-TEC Corp. is a developmental-stage company that engineers next-generation electro-optic (EO) plastics for future applications vital to modern commerce, homeland security, and medical technology. PSI-TEC's proprietary electro-optic plastics are produced at the molecular level for superior performance, stability and cost-efficiency and are expected to replace more expensive, lower-performance materials used in fiber-optic ground, wireless and satellite communication networks.
