Fujikura's specialty fibers play important roles as components of optical products not only for optical communication network such as optical amplifier, but also for fiber lasers that are attracting attention as a next-generation light source.
A silicon optical waveguide can trap light in an ultrasmall area of several hundred nanometers, making optical devices ultimately compact. Using the silicon optical waveguides, we develop optical devices such as ultrasmall optical modulators which allow high-speed optical signal processing.
Superconducting technology is of great value to make effective use of limited energy resource. Superconducting can realize compact high-performance electric equipment and make effective use of wasted power in power grid, transportation, industry and medical application. Furthermore, its technology can replace aircraft, which have a dependence on fossil fuels, with maglev vehicles in high-speed traffic. Fujikura purses the development of high-performance superconducting wires using yttrium-based high-Tc superconductor with the highest current-carrying capacities in order to address these social needs.
Photovoltaics technology is on of the best solution for the global problems, such as drastic increase of energy demand and rapid consumption of resources, or global warming and atmospheric pollution represented by CO2 emission. Fujikura concerns on the research and development of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) with the aim of early commercialization since DSC is environmentally friendly and red
Our technology to embed electronic components in printed circuit boards used for electronic equipment such as cell phones enables significant increase in the board density and the miniaturization of the instruments. Consequently it attracts great attention as a next-generation, high-density mounting technology.
