CST Global To Present Latest On Blue Laser Diode Project

News

Thomas Slight will provide an update at SPIE Photonics West on first single wavelength, 422nm GaN, DFB laser

Thomas Slight, research engineer at CST Global, will be a guest presenter at SPIE Photonics West (PW) in California, in February.

Slight's paper, 'Recent progress in distributed feedback, InGaN/GaN laser diodes', provides an update on the UK government-funded CoolBlue projects, which he is leading. These projects use next-generation, GaN, laser diodes for quantum sensing systems like atomic clocks.

Slight will use Photonics West to provide an update on the next-generation, GaN, DFB lasers CST is developing for ultra-cooling Strontium ions, for use in quantum clocks.

Already, a single wavelength, 422nm GaN, DFB laser has been successfully produced. This is the optimal wavelength for ultra-cooling, Strontium ions and represents a significant breakthrough in the project.

Slight said: “The CoolBlue laser diode source is more powerful, smaller and easier to make than conventional, quantum clock sources. This makes it increasingly feasible to transform quantum sensors from ‘laboratory instruments' into miniaturised, robust systems, for a wide range of commercial applications.”



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.

Places will be limited, so register your place today: https://cs-international.net
