Vector Photonics Primed To Fast-track PCSEL Roll-out

News

Appoints Jon Orchard as principal device engineer to bring PCSEL technology into next-gen datacoms, additive manufacturing and 3D printing markets

Vector Photonics is pleased to announce the appointment of Jon Orchard as principal device engineer. Orchard will help fast-track the company's PCSEL technology into next-generation datacoms, additive manufacturing and 3D printing markets.

Richard Taylor, CTO of Vector Photonics, said: “Dr. Jon Orchard is a well-known and well-respected engineer in the photonics industry and a great asset to our business. He will play a critical part in expediting our PCSEL device development, optimising it for a fabless environment.

“Jon brings extensive experience of compound semiconductor EEL and VCSEL development and has worked on both active and passive photonic device fabrication. He also has unique expertise in MOCVD and MBE products, machines and characterisation equipment. This was gained whilst he was a KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) candidate at the University of Glasgow, collaborating with CST Global (now Sivers Photonics) on their MOCVD development, where he later became a development engineer.”

Orchard has a degree in Solid State Devices and a PhD, ‘Development of Electrically Pumped VECSELs', from the University of Sheffield. His post-doctoral research on Silicon based quantum dot (QD) lasers and light sources was an EPSRC-funded, collaborative project with UCL, Cardiff and Warwick. He has 18 published, peer-reviewed articles and many national and international conference credits to his name where he was the invited or guest-speaker.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
