Press Release

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the Naval Air Warfare Center to develop high-performance modulator technology for radio-frequency (RF) over fiber links.

PSI’s Active Low-Voltage Modulators (ALVM) are based on the thin film lithium niobate (TFLN) photonic-integrated circuit platform to realize enhanced RF links that are compact, efficient, and can be scalably manufactured using a commercial wafer-scale production capability. Our ALVM design combines semiconductor optical amplifiers with ultra-low V-π modulators to enable RF-over-fiber links with low noise figures and high bandwidths for advanced electronic-warfare applications.
