POET and EpiWorks Announce collaboration

Multi-year deal to manufacture wafers for monolithic optoelectronics process platform

POET Technologies a developer of optoelectronics fabrication processes, and EpiWorks, a developer of compound semiconductor wafers, have announced a multi-year development and production supply agreement.

During this agreement, EpiWorks will manufacture wafers for POET's Monolithic Optoelectronics process platform using its advanced MOCVD production toolset.

"This partnership is POET's latest advance in its lab-to-fab commercialisation initiative in calendar 2016. Utilising high-performance, manufacturable epi-wafer technology is a key to this initiative, and we are happy to be working with EpiWorks for MOCVD-based development and production," said POET CEO Suresh Venkatesan. 

He added: "We are pleased with the early promising results EpiWorks demonstrated with MOCVD, which will provide a more manufacturable alternate path to MBE techniques and accelerate our technology maturity. To build on our recent successes working together, we formalised this supply agreement to enable further acceleration of our program."

"We are excited to be working closely with POET Technologies by offering manufacturing excellence and scalability for innovative opto-electronic devices" said Quesnell Hartmann, CEO of EpiWorks. "By establishing a development and supply agreement, our companies expect to be working closely together for several years, allowing the technology to continuously and rapidly improve long after it is scaled into production."
