Osram And Corning To Promote Laser Diode/ Fibre Combo

Osram Opto Semiconductors and Corning have announced a co-marketing agreement to promote a technology that embeds Osram's blue and green laser diodes into Corning's glass optical fibre.

Corning's Fibrance light-diffusing fibre (pictured above) disperses light, rather than transferring it, allowing it to emit colours up to 50 meters in product length. 

Osram Opto Semiconductors has been a pioneer in the development of direct green laser diodes based on InGaN. According to the company, Osram's blue and green laser diodes are well suited for optical imaging of light and excellent efficiency, which minimises their temperature increase and improves their performance life. 

"We expect the automotive and consumer markets to be early adopters of this technology," said Osram marketing manager, Sevugan Nagappan. "While Fibrance fibre is ideal for vehicle interior applications, the design possibilities and product integration opportunities are truly endless."

"With this fibre, designers can enhance a product's appeal and functionality by adding light how and where they want it," said Curt Weinstein, vice president and general manager, advanced optics, Corning Specialty Materials. "Our long-term goal is to get Fibrance Light-Diffusing fibre into the hands of designers and let the capabilities of the product create new lighting possibilities."



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

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

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. 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. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove 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.
