AIM Photonics, the photonics institute based in Rochester, announced Wednesday an IP licensing agreement with IBM.
The agreement will establish standard processes in the development of silicon photonics assemblies, such as couplings for communication signals and light.
This will help generate both growth and job opportunities for the City of Rochester and Monroe County, AIM says.
"Adding IBM as a member of AIM Photonics not only significantly strengthens this outstanding institute, but highlights the momentum the Finger Lakes region is experiencing in the high tech sector," said John Maggiore, New York State photonics board of officers chairman. "This announcement further validates the importance of this institute and the goals it has set out to achieve."
