via PRNewswire

SAN JOSE, Calif. , May 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bookham, Inc. has announced the acquisition from Precision Photonics Corporation (PPC) of its LB1005 High-Speed Servo Controller product line. Through the New Focus product line, the LB1005 will be available immediately to the scientific laser community, and offers a strong addition to the company's established line of tunable and single frequency lasers.

The LB1005 high-speed servo controller is a one-box solution that allows for highly stable frequency and intensity locks on many types of lasers as well as synchronization of pairs of lasers. It is designed for flexibility, offering independent control of the P-I corner frequency, overall servo gain, and low-frequency gain limit. The all-analog design is extremely quiet and extremely high bandwidth. The controller is suited to a variety of applications, including atom/ion trapping, Bose-Einstein condensation, frequency metrology, quantum optics, and the high-speed stabilization, synchronization, and control of lasers.

"The addition of the High-Speed Servo Controller to the New Focus product line will increase our value to existing customers, and continue to grow our reputation for delivering the finest quality photonic tools and solutions," said Bookham EVP, Ken Ibbs . "The LB1005 servo controller is considered the leader in its class, and we look forward to offering users the same commitment to manufacturing, distribution, and service as we do with our other New Focus products."

The LB1005 will be on display at the New Focus booth (#1821) at the CLEO exhibition, taking place at the San Jose Convention Center, 6-8 May. For further information, please contact your local New Focus representative, or visit the New Focus website --
