Freedom Photonics joins the CW-WDM MSA as an observer

Freedom Photonics has joined the CW-WDM MSA (Continuous-Wave Wavelength Division Multiplexing Multi-Source Agreement) as an observer. CS-WDM was formed to standardize WDM CW sources in O-band for emerging advanced integrated optics applications that are expected to move to 8, 16, and 32 wavelengths. Such higher wavelength counts are needed for emerging applications such as silicon…
