Coherent to Present a Broad Portfolio of New Products and Technology Innovations at OFC 2024

PITTSBURGH, March 25, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coherent Corp. (NYSE: COHR), a global leader in optical communications components and subsystems, announced today that it will showcase its new products and technologies for next-generation optical communications networks at OFC 2024, March 26-28 at the San Diego Convention Center, Booth #3412. Coherent thought leaders will present at panels, technical sessions, and other OFC events.


  • Significant Advancements in VCSEL Performance
    Bandwidth improvement in Coherent’s vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL), paving the way for use in next-generation optical interconnects that will operate at 200 Gbps per lane. 200 Gbps VCSELs are expected to power future 1.6 Tbps transceivers.
  • 6-inch Indium Phosphide Semiconductor Wafer Fabs
    6-inch InP wafer fabrication introduced in both Coherent’s U.S. and European fabs to significantly reduce die cost for InP optoelectronic devices including lasers, detectors, and electronics.
  • I-Temp 100G ZR QSFP28-DCO Module
    Industry-first 100G ZR QSFP28 digital coherent optics (DCO) transceiver supporting an industrial operating temperature range; designed for deployment in outdoor environments, this module utilizes Coherent’s Steelerton™ digital signal processor (DSP), a purpose-built DSP component family launched in 2022, in conjunction with an efficient silicon photonics optical front-end and a power-optimized tunable laser.
  • High-Power Uncooled Pump Laser Module
    New uncooled pump laser modules able to deliver, in a compact 10-pin form factor, up to 1000 mW of output power for submarine applications and up to 2x700 mW of output power for terrestrial applications.
  • Bi-Directional Circulator Adaptor
    Bi-di circulator adaptor based on Coherent’s vertically integrated circulator technology that enables bi-directional transmission over a single fiber between two transceivers in a compact footprint compatible with all transceiver LC connector ports.
  • Extended C+L-Band Grisms
    A groundbreaking family of advanced, aberration-correcting, high-efficiency grisms and transmission gratings capable of encompassing the entire extended C+L band in a single optic.
  • Microlens Array (MLA) Solution
    Comprehensive and versatile platform for advanced collimation, focusing, and beam-shaping capabilities in a highly compact package: ideal for high-speed communication transceivers and modules, optical circuit switches, and LiDAR systems.


  • Optical Circuit Switch for Datacenters
    300x300 port Datacenter Lightwave Cross-Connect (DLX™), an optical circuit switch based on the company’s field-proven and ultrareliable digital liquid-crystal technology to enable new AI network architectures that replace traditional packet switches with optical circuit switches.
  • 200G per lane Linear Pluggable Optics for 800G
    Demonstration of linear pluggable optics performance with 200 Gbps PAM4 electrical and optical lanes in an 800G-DR4 transceiver platform.
  • 800G ZR/OpenZR+ QSFP-DD-DCO
    Demonstration of 800G QSFP-DD-DCO in various setups: over an optical link of 450 km fiber, in datacenter router, and at OIF booth with 400G and 800G interoperability demo.
  • 100G ZR QSFP28-DCO I-Temp Module
    Demonstration of the industry’s first 100G QSFP28 ZR supporting an industrial operating temperature range (-40°C to 85°C). The coherent transceiver is integrated with in-house purpose-built DSP, silicon photonics optical engine, and tunable laser.
  • C+L-Band Transport Product Modules
    Demonstration of ultrawide-band OCM, C+L-band EDFA, and 3x33 Flexgrid® C+L-band twin wavelength selective switch (WSS) to meet the increasing demand for the expanded transmission bandwidth in DCI, metro, and long-haul applications.
