Vector Photonics fast-tracks PCSEL commercialisation

News

Company opts for fast-track prototype supply chain based entirely in Scotland’s photonics cluster

Vector Photonics has announced that it is commercialising its all-semiconductor PCSELs using a prototype supply chain based entirely in Scotland’s photonics cluster.

The company says that each step of the supply chain is provided by a Scottish company which is established, profitable, independent, world-class, and competing successfully in their own, respective, vertical markets. Additionally, each company is a member of Technology Scotland, the industry association representing Scotland’s wider, enabling, technologies sectors.

Alastair McInroy, CEO of Technology Scotland, who visited Vector Photonics recently to discuss the supply chain capability further, said: “We are excited to find that prototype, compound semiconductor lasers can be made entirely within the Scottish photonics cluster. This capability was identified by Vector Photonics whilst commercialising their PCSEL technology.

“All the companies in the supply chain are Technology Scotland members, so, on their behalf, we are keen to raise awareness of this unique capability to government. Strategic funding and investment could enable the collaboration necessary to develop Alpha and Beta supply chains, with both individual and collective, company benefits. Scotland’s place as a world-leader in compound semiconductor laser development and production would be secured, with high gross value added (GVA) jobs created and wider positive implications for Scottish GDP.

Euan Livingston, sales and marketing director at Vector Photonics added, “The prototype supply chain provides epitaxy; front end processing; resist, E-beam, etch and clean; overgrowth; post-overgrowth processing; back-end-of-line; and packaging – all from companies in Scotland’s central belt.”

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
