WHAT: Dr. J.C. Chiao from Chorum Technologies in Richardson, Texas, will present "Next-Generation Components" at the 2001 Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO) and Quantum Electronics and Laser Science (QELS). CLEO/QELS is widely recognized as the world's most significant conference and this is also the world's largest exhibit on lasers and electro-optics in North America. Dr. Chiao's presentation is part of the CLEO/QELS Lasers and Electro-Optics Applications Program (LEAP), which presents a distinguished group of speakers who explore technology and business areas in fiber optics and photonics. The CLEO/QELS conference is managed by the Optical Society of America. WHO: Dr. Jung-Chih (J.C.) Chiao, Senior Technology Advisor, Chorum Technologies Dr. Chiao is Chorum Technologies' senior technology advisor for liquid crystal products, including attenuators, switches, cross connects, attenuator arrays, harmonic equalizers and advanced optical processors. Prior to Chorum he served as a research scientist at Telcordia in the Optical Networking Systems and Testbeds group. He also was an assistant professor and is now an adjunct professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Hawaii at Manoa. Dr. Chiao has published 53 technical journal and conference papers. He is one of the authors of the book Active and Quasi-Optical Arrays and holds 14 pending patents in RF MEMS, MEMS optics and liquid crystal technologies. In 1995, he received his Ph.D. from the MMIC group in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology. WHEN: Thursday, May 10, 2001, 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. WHERE: Baltimore Convention Center Pratt Street LEAP Pavilion- Exhibit Hall 410/649-6022 ABOUT CHORUM: Chorum Technologies, Inc. is a leading provider of all-optical processors and subsystems in the fast-growing fiber-optics market. The company's PolarWave(TM) family of optically filtering, switching, routing and processing technologies enables networks that are faster, more flexible and more cost effective than today's networks. Chorum Technologies Inc. was founded in 1996 and is based in the Telecom Corridor(R) of Richardson, Texas. For more information, visit www.chorumtech.com.
