Optical InterLinks LLC was established in 2006 from an asset buy out of Optical CrossLinks Inc that originated in 1998. The current team licensed the rights to practice the polymer waveguide (PWG) technology they generated at DuPont starting in 1985. While at DuPont the team developed the process concepts and polymer material formulations with patented IP covering the self-development monomer diffusion based technology. Significant developments on processes, formulations, connectivity, product embodiments and waveguide performance have been made since having left DuPont.
