Towards an end-to-end photonics ecosystem – Interview with Michael Liehr, AIM Photonics

Michael Liehr is the Chief Executive Officer of the American Institute for Manufacturing (AIM) of Integrated Photonics and the SUNY Poly Executive Vice President for Technology and Innovation

The American Institute for Manufacturing Photonics (AIM Photonics) installed by former U.S. President Obama, is a manufacturing consortium headquartered in NY, with funding from the US Department of Defense, New York State, California and Massachusetts, and industrial partners to advance the state of the art in the design, manufacture, testing, assembly, and packaging of integrated photonic devices. “Our mission is to create a national institute supporting the end-to-end integrated photonics manufacturing ecosystem in the U.S. by expanding upon a highly successful public-private partnership model with open-access to world-class shared-use resources and capabilities.

Our emphasis is on overall reduction of manufacturing cost and design complexity to reduce the barrier to entry in this” says Michael Liehr. He focuses on the creation of new semiconductor and related industries business opportunities, and is responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the SUNY Poly industrial programs including SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s strategic 300mm advanced CMOS line, integrated photonic semiconductor and 3D packaging and the 150mm SiC power electronics.
