Q-Peak’s All-fiber Ultrafast Quantum Optical Switches

Thursday, December 1, 2016


Q-Peak, Inc. has been awarded a contract from the US Army to design and develop a novel ultrafast, extremely low loss, all-fiber switching architecture that promises near Raman-free operation.

Q-Peak will utilize a novel interferometric all-fiber switch with nonlinear enhancement, to make it possible to provide both ultrafast switching speeds and reduce laser power requirements.

Ultrafast, in-line, low-loss switching technology is a commercially viable alternative to high loss Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) switches, as well as providing an enabling technology for seed shaping of pulsed fiber and solid state lasers.
