Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi)'s Nanona™ ultra-fast optical switch redirects the optical signal from one channel to another at speeds faster than 60ns. The switch utilizes the breakthrough OptoCeramic™ electro-optic material developed by BATi researchers for a variety of light-control applications. Combining the solid-state operation inside a free space propagation architecture which eliminates the moving parts and organic materials, the switch enables ultra-fast, reliable switching with low insertion loss and simple driver.
