NanoOpto Chosen as a Recipient of the Communication Systems Design 2002 Comet Award
Award recognizes up and coming companies who are well positioned to be one of the next big optical networking players.
New Jersey. September 5, 2002. NanoOpto Corp.,
which is applying proprietary nano-optics and nano-manufacturing
technology to design and manufacture components for optical networking,
announced today that it has been chosen as a recipient of the Communication
Systems Design 2002 Comet Award. This award, in its third year,
honors top “up and coming” companies that have the vision,
focus, technology, and skills to become significant players in the
communications market. The award winners were selected by a panel
of editors from Communication Systems Design, EETimes, and CommsDesign.
Awards were created to recognize the achievements of emerging companies
who introduce significant technical advances that will fundamentally
affect the communications industry,” said Patrick Mannion,
Editor of Communication Systems Design. “With its nanotechnology-based
breakthroughs in the design and manufacturing of modular nano-optic
components, Communication Systems Design’s editorial team feels
that NanoOpto is defining new paradigms for optical system
design that have the potential to dramatically reduce the cost of
is pleased to be recognized by Communication Systems Design,”
said Barry Weinbaum, President and CEO of NanoOpto. “This
award honors our entire team for their dedication and hard work
in developing, commercializing, and delivering a revolutionary methodology
for creating optical components. NanoOpto’s optical
components and manufacturing technology are progressively enabling
optical component, module, and system designers to realize superior
cost/performance, increased flexibility, and enhanced application
capabilities that were never before possible with conventional bulk
NanoOpto Corp. is applying proprietary nano-optics and nano-manufacturing
technology to design and make components for optical networking.
Based on years of research, the company’s nano-optical design
capability allows orders of magnitude more rapid prototyping, higher
performance, and lower overall system cost. Both on its own and
with corporate partners, NanoOpto will use patented nano-imprint
technologies to produce better conventional optical components and
also to create new classes of integrated modular nano-optic components.
The company has received financial backing from leading venture
capitalists, has brought on line a high volume nano-imprint manufacturing
facility, and is based in Somerset, New Jersey.
