In addition, the Company continues to develop specialty glass products in conjunction with its POVD
Charles De Luca, Managing Director of FiberCore Jena AG, commented, "This order represents a very important step in the further development of our POVD technology.
added, "Our technical staff should be highly praised for the tremendous level of effort that was put forth in moving POVD from the development phase to where it is today.
Certain aspects of the POVD
implementation process, which have been delayed for financial reasons, are expected to go into production in the first half of this year at our new FiberCore Glas facility in Jena, Germany.
FiberCore continues to invest in the next generation POVD
technology, which will provide technical benefits to our products and will allow us to significantly reduce production costs," said Dr.
The POVD technology will be used initially in one of the manufacturing steps of single-mode preform.
The first phase of the POVD commercialization project will require a total investment of Euro 10 million (US$9 million).
