Alfalight To Supply Raytheon With Semiconductor Laser Modules
$1.9 m contract targets aerospace applications
Alfalight, a US developer of infrared and visible laser systems for defence and security use, has announced it has received a contract to deliver semiconductor laser modules for an aerospace system built by Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems (SAS).
The eighteen-month contract has a value of $1.9 million, with an option to increase the total to $3.1 million later in 2015.
The company also announced that it received the Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon for 'exceptional' quality and delivery of its high-performance, ruggedised laser diode subsystems. Alfalight first qualified to provide the lasers to Raytheon for this application in 2007.
"This contract is evidence of the value of Alfalight's technology and our long term success as a supplier of lasers to the defense market. We are proud that Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems has also recognized the quality of our products and services with their Supplier Excellence Award," said Mohan Warrior, president and chief executive officer.
"This new business and our strong relationship underscore many years of dedication to designing and manufacturing rugged, integrated laser systems for the most demanding and critical applications."

and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
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.
