    PolarOnyx, a world leader in high energy and high power ultrafast fiber lasers, announced a reorganization in better positioning for the fast growing market and keeping its leading position in product innovations.

    Dr. Jian Liu, founder and former Bell Labs/Lucent researcher, will focus on building a world class R&D team. He is still in charge of business and marketing.

    Dr. Lihmei Yang, is promoted to Director of Sales and Product. In addition to sales responsibilities, she will lead the manufacturing group. Lihmei has been holding the world-first publication in high energy fs fiber laser.
  • April 5, 2007
    Engineers in PolarOnyx, Inc. have successfully developed the world's first over 25 W output power femtosecond fiber laser product. This laser has a polarized output power of 25 W and < 300 fs pulse width after compression. This success gives more choice to our customers in selecting our award winning high power femtosecond fiber laser products.
  • March 21, 2007
    PolarOnyx receives its second Innovation Award from CLEO (PhAST/Laser Focus World Innovation Award) for the world’s first 10 W femtosecond fiber laser. This award, followed by our last year’s award, further strengthen PolarOnyx's position as the world leading supplier in high energy and high power femtosecond fiber lasers.
  • May 22, 2006
    PolarOnyx receives an Innovation Award from CLEO 2006 (PhAST/Laser Focus World Innovation Award) for creating the 100 uJ femtosecond fiber laser and impacting future fiber laser applications.
  • January 25, 2005
    PolarOnyx has made a very successful exhibition in Photonics West in San Jose, California. Its real time demonstration of a < 100 fs mode locked fiber laser has impressed visitors and attracted many potential customers. PolarOnyx also introduced its newly developed high power fiber laser module in the exhibition. This module provides polarized 15 W output power at1 micron.

    One of our best-in-class fiber laser products has been well received by an internationally well-known institute (we could not release the name by request). A high power < 100 fs mode locked fiber laser from PolarOnyx was used by the researchers at the institute as a frequency comb source. They quote our laser "… self-starts very nicely. It can generate a signal for the offset frequency when we use it in conjunction with highly nonlinear fiber. Moreover, the signal tunes well if we change the pump diode current and it is not particularly noisy."

    San Francisco, CA - PolarOnyx made a successful exhibition at CLEO. A live demo of its < 200 fs mode locked fiber laser attracted many visitors in PolarOnyx booth (#909). The mode-locked laser can directly deliver < 200 fs transform-limited pulses without any means of compression. This provides the most cost effective way in generation of ultra-short pulses.
  • March 18, 2004
    San Diego, CA - In Smart Structure and Materials/NDE conference, PolarOnyx made a live demo of its mini ASE modules. These modules are designed to support fiber sensing systems, a fast growing business.
  • Jan. 29, 2004
    San Jose, CA - PolarOnyx, Inc. has successfully made its product exhibition at Photonics West. PolarOnyx has exhibited its products including broadband source and single frequency and high power fiber lasers. A real time demonstation for its best-in-class broadband C+L ASE sources (both module and instrument) has been brought up many attentions from potential customers in favor of its high power, flat and stable spectrum.
