Pennington, NJ (PRWEB) August 6, 2008
PD-LD, Inc., the worldwide leader in Volume Bragg Grating® (VBG®) technology, was recently awarded a new U.S. patent that covers the firm's newest VBG advancement. This new patent demonstrates PD-LD's commitment to developing the important technology of VBG elements and making them suitable for an ever increasing range of applications.
U.S. Patent No. 7,391,703 protects an improved and simpler laser mechanism, according to Dr. Boris Volodin, creator of the patent and PD-LD's Director of Research and Development. "This unique finding allows us to create a new class of product that we think will be very desirable for the wide range of clients already utilizing our products for test equipment, spectroscopy, and other applications where high volumes of VBG's will be needed," said Volodin. "There are also various laboratory and military applications yet to be explored, as we move this technology beyond the concept phase."
"This method is an important advancement of the VBG element because it gives us the opportunity to increase the clear aperture of the recording, allowing for a larger tuning range of the wavelength, and more efficiency," said Dr. Vladimir Ban, PD-LD President and CEO.
Dr. Ban also emphasized the firm's willingness to customize this technology to suit customer needs. "PD-LD has introduced many new technologies to the marketplace, but our effort to collaborate with consumers and meet their unique demands truly sets us apart from others," he noted.
