Global semiconductor developer BluGlass Limited has secured initial purchase orders of its 405 nm and 420 nm 250 mW single-mode gallium nitride (GaN) lasers from two customers.
These commercial purchase orders were received from industry-leading OEMs following BluGlass’ successful product launch at the Photonics West conference in San Francisco.
Customers will use these first products to qualify BluGlass’ lasers within their own applications, which include quantum and robotic uses. Revenues from these initial low-volume orders are immaterial; however, once the lasers are qualified, BluGlass expects to secure recurring larger-volume orders from these customers.
Additional customer proposals are progressing with several customers across multiple market segments.
BluGlass President Jim Haden said, “Our newly launched GaN lasers were incredibly well received at Photonics West, reaffirming the need for a dedicated provider to address unmet market needs across several verticals. We are encouraged to have received our first orders so soon after the event. These orders are an important step towards commercial revenues and demonstrate demand for our lasers from key industry players in underserved wavelengths, flexible form factors, and semi-custom designs. As a result of this increased interest in our newly released products, we expect additional orders from potential customers and partners to be imminent.”
This announcement has been approved for release by the BluGlass Board.
