TUCSON, Ariz., Nov. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- AdValue Photonics, Inc. (Tucson, AZ) is highly honored to announce that they have been selected by the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) as the winner of its 2018 Corporate Technical Achievement Award for the company's highly rare-earth doped silicate glass fibers. The award recognizes the development of this technology and its application in making innovative fiber lasers by AdValue Photonics.
This AcerS award "recognizes a single outstanding technical achievement made by an ACerS corporate member in the field of ceramics. The achievement must show significant technical merit and represent a gain to society through commercialization of the technology within the preceding eight years." Past winners of this award include Corning for its "Gorilla Glass," GE for its "Gemstone™ Ceramic Scintillator" (enabled an ultra premium CT imaging system), SCHOTT for its "Manufacture of laser glass by continuous melting," and Lucent for its "10 Gb/s lithium niobate modulator," to just name a few.
At the heart of the AdValue Photonics' technology of Highly Rare-Earth Doped Silicate Glass Fibers is the company's capability to design and control the glass composition, doping concentration and fibers' mechanical and geometrical properties to optimize laser performance. By using higher doping concentrations and shorter fiber lengths, we are able to minimize nonlinearities to obtain higher pulse energies and higher peak powers than otherwise achievable with commercial off-the-shelf laser fibers. With our development and manufacturing teams co-located in Tucson, Arizona, we are able to quickly customize our laser solutions to suit customers' specific requirements.
