Optical Modulators Materials Market – Overview

Optical modulator is an equipment used for the modification of the properties of light, particularly the laser beam. Depending on the mode of application, these optical modulators are segmented into phase modulators, intensity modulators, and polarization modulators. These modulators find their application in the sector of telecommunications and network connectivity. This has been a significant driving factor for the growth of the optical modulators materials market as the demand from the end use sector is on a constant rise.

Optical Modulators Materials Market – Notable Developments

Some of the recent and notable developments in the global optical modulators materials market are given below:

  • In July 2017, CASTECH Inc., a leading brand in the global optical modulators materials market announced that the company has found a new crystal that will help in the further optimization of its optical modulators devices. The crystal is called Yb: CALGO.
  • In July 2017, CASTEC Inc. also announced that the company has launched Chirped Mirrors to compensate the pulse broadening effects in the ultra-fast laser applications with multiple bandwidths. The company also said that they have invested in the new metrology instrument for accurate measurement of the dispersive features and properties of the optical coatings and component. The company is planning to provide highly customized solutions to their end users as per the requirements.
  • In November 2016, CLaser, another prominent name in the global optical modulators materials market, announced that the company has moved a new production facility based in Shanghai. The new office will be bigger and provide better environment for the on-going research and development activities of the company.

Optical Modulators Materials Market – Drivers and Restraints
