EpiPhotonics was established in 2007 as the fruit of 20 years' research
and development of PLZT optical waveguides and devices at Fuji Xerox, Xerox
PARC and MIT. EpiPhotonics is committed to delivering differentiated value
to customers and partners though its unique technology. It is our mission
to lead the way in developing technological advances that make better systems
for future communications.

Keiichi Nashimoto, Ph.D.
Founder, President and CEO
Keiichi "Ken" Nashimoto has more than 20 years of experience
in the fiber optics industry and is well known as a pioneer of thin film
PLZT waveguide technology. He served as President and CEO at Nozomi Photonics
and Fuji Xerox Lightwave Technologies where he founded the PLZT component
business. He also managed various projects during his 16 years at Fuji
Xerox. He was also a visiting scientist at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, where he pioneered solid-phase epitaxy, and Xerox Palo Alto
Research Center, where he invented the first epitaxial oxides on GaAs structure.
Ken organized the first international symposium on "Thin Films for
Optical Waveguide Devices" at the Materials Research Society in Boston
in 1999. He received awards from such organizations as the Technical Committee
on Photonic Network at the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication
Engineers (IEICE). He has 80 issued or filed patents, 100 publications,
and number of invited lectures.
Ken received his Ph.D. in applied physics from the Nagoya Institute of
Technology and an M.S. and a B.S. in Metallurgy from Waseda University.
He completed the Advanced Study Program at MIT where he studied management
of technology at Sloan School of Management. He is a fellow of IEICE. He
is a member of IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society, IEICE, the Japan
Society of Applied Physics, the Materials Research Society, and the Ceramic
Society of Japan.
