III-V Epi produces novel InP laser structures


Epitaxy developments for University of Surrey eliminate expensive, energy-hungry laser cooling systems

III-V Epi, the fast turnaround manufacturer of MBE and MOCVD, III-V epitaxial structures, has successfully produced experimental, telecoms laser structures targeting temperature insensitive operation. The epitaxy development was for the University of Surrey, funded by a UK, EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account.

Stephen Sweeney (pictured above), the University of Surrey lead researcher, managing the project, said: “The team at III-V Epi is helping us to develop robust and practical, InP based, epitaxial wafers for telecoms lasers that eliminate the need for expensive, energy-hungry, cooling systems.

"III-V Epi provided design and engineering expertise in the choice of material systems and manufacturability, which informed our design simulations.

“III-V Epi went on to produce wafers by MOCVD for the university to process, test and further optimise. The resulting lasers will be a breakthrough in the industry, with this development enabled by III-V Epi’s world-class service and expertise.”

The University of Surrey is one of 36 institutions with an EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account. This provides rapid access to funds from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) for knowledge exchange, innovation, and impact – such as proof of concept, commercialisation, and market validation projects of this type.
