Transforming laser manufacturing
III-V Epi is offering fast turnaround for bringing new compound semiconductor products to market
A UK company called III-V Epi claims to be transforming how semiconductor lasers are made. The company helps its customers to bring new compound semiconductor products to market, as quickly as possible.
CTO is Richard Hogg, head of the Electronic and Nanoscale Engineering Division at the University of Glasgow, who is actively involved with a number of high-growth photonics companies.
Hogg is a specialist in III-V structures and materials. He's worked at Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratories on a range of III-V semiconductor devices, and at Agilent Technologies where he responsible for wafer characterisation outputs on seven, MOCVD reactors, developing and manufacturing InP and GaAs optical components, when the company was the highest volume III-V facility in Europe.
III-V Epi provides a range of compound semiconductor wafer foundry services, specialising in the manufacture of small volume and prototype, MBE and MOCVD, III-V, epitaxial structures for compound semiconductor device applications.
The company offers wafer design, product development and process optimisation along with a complete range of test, metrology and characterisation services.
The company says its customers operate in global electronics and photonics markets, including: development and manufacturing departments of large companies; fab-lite’ companies developing new laser solutions; university start-ups and ‘spin-out’ companies; university photonics and optics departments; defence industries; and datacomms and telecomms.
