Lumera secures $1 million government contract

Nov. 25, 2002 — Optical networking components developer Lumera Corp., a subsidiary of Microvision Inc., has been awarded a contract extension for approximately $1 million from the U.S. government to continue development of new electro-optic polymer materials for the fabrication of prototype wideband optical modulators, the company said in a news release.


This second stage of the contract is scheduled for completion within 11 months. The government exercised this option to extend a previously announced contract.


Lumera is developing a new generation of unique active and passive components for optical networks that are expected to deliver increased bandwidth at very competitive costs while requiring less power than current devices, the release said. The company’s component development is based on proprietary electro-optic polymer materials it developed with its research partners at the University of Washington.
