Sheffield Spin-out Launches First Laser

Quantum cascade laser targets gas sensing and environmental monitoring

Stratium, a quantum cascade laser manufacturing company and spinout from the University of Sheffield in the UK, has launched its first quantum cascade laser (QCL) for gas sensing and and environmental monitoring.

The firm has particular expertise in short-wavelength QCLs.

The first  product, the Bruar 100mW (peak) pulsed QCL chip on sub-mount, operates at room temperature and has three wavelengths: 2.8, 3.3 and 10.0µm,  suitable for detecting ethanol, methane and ammonia respectively. It will be exhibited at the forthcoming SPIE Photonics West event in San Francisco.

Stratium has recently moved to Cardiff, Wales to take advantage of local compound semiconductor expertise and investment. This includes £50 million investment from the UK Government to create the UK's first CS R&D Catapult Centre, which will bring together entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists with state-of-the-art facilities to create new products and services.



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.
