Marktech Joins DoD AIM Photonics consortium
Marktech Optoelectronics, a US manufacturer of optoelectronics components and assemblies, including UV, visible, near-infrared (NIR), and short wavelength infrared (SWIR) emitters, detectors, InP epiwafers and other materials, has announced its membership in The American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics).
AIM Photonics is an industry driven, public-private United States Department of Defense-led engineering technology consortium, spearheaded by the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute (SUNY Poly). Through its partnerships with leading small-to-medium-sized industry manufacturers, academia, and service providers, AIM Photonics seeks to emulate the same 40-year dramatic successes that have already been achieved within the electronics industry, applying key lessons, processes, and best practices to the emerging photonic integrated circuit (PIC) sector.
Marktech CEO, Mark Campito commented: "Throughout Marktech's nearly 35-year history, our unwavering commitment to the advancement of the photonics sector has been well demonstrated. It has formed the cornerstone of all that we do, in support of our many valued customers. By joining AIM Photonics, Marktech looks forward to reaffirming this commitment on a larger and more visible scale, while directly lending our vast R&D expertise to the evolving U.S. PIC technology roadmap."
Marktech has a focus on custom solutions. At its R&D centre in Latham, New York, it has the in-house capabilities to perform complete electrical and optical design characteristics testing. This includes end-to-end examinations of all optical components from die level to finished product designs, with applications engineering assistance provided by one of the industry's most experienced teams. Marktech is also a Cree Solution Provider for high-brightness LEDs and materials.
