SMART Photonics
Independent InP Foundry – Your design, our service, your future

SMART Photonics, located in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, is a foundry offering production services for mainly Indium Phosphide based photonic components. We are an independent pure-play foundry, using our knowledge, experience and equipment to produce photonic components for our customers, based on their designs.

We offer the complete production process from epitaxial growth and re-growth, processing, polishing and dicing of wafers into chips. As an independent Pure-Play foundry we support our customers from the proof of concept phase up to and including full production. As a foundry, we also offer single or combined process steps to complete or being a back-up for the production processes of customers.

Photonic Integrated Circuits are Enabling Innovative Products

People from all over the world will be present at the 3rd Annual Photonic Integration Conference which will take place at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. One of the keynotes will be by Lightwave Logic CEO Dr. Michael Lebby. His main message: “Photonic Integrated Circuits are Enabling Innovative Products.”

Dr. Lebby will provide an overview of the data communications environment and the latest results of polymer PICs that can scale using 50Gbps modulators for 400Gbps applications. His company, Lightwave Logic, is a technology company focused on the development of Next Generation Photonic Devices and Non-Linear Optical Polymer Materials Systems for applications in high-speed fiber-optic data communications and telecommunications.

The 3rd Annual Photonic Integration Conference is a technical conference that focuses only on PIC based technologies and attracts speakers and companies from all over the world and is attended by senior stakeholders in the integrated photonics value-chain.

Photonic integration in the future access market – Interview with Professor John Marsh, University of Glasgow

public market

“With a bit of luck and cooperation of the major stakeholders in the public market, we will have in about two years time faster internet connections”, according to professor John Marsh. But the far east will be the first to enjoy this advantage, as they have invested heavily in fibre optic systems over the past decade rather than relying on old copper networks like Europe and North America. On top of that it is of immense importance that the leading access network companies in the world agree on standards that include a robust roadmap for the next 15 years.

Meint Smit: Next Steps for InP-based Photonic Integration Technology

Indium Phosphide is a versatile semiconductor material that allows for integration of a broad range of components in a single chip. Basic building blocks include lasers, optical amplifiers, modulators, detectors and a variety of passive components, including wavelength demultiplexers, filters and couplers. InP-chips with record complexities of more than 1700 components integrated in a single chip have been reported. InP-based foundry processes offer low-cost access to mature integration processes with high performance and wafer-scale integration of InP-based photonic circuits with silicon electronics is emerging. Meint Smit will discuss what’s coming next and why this phase is important. Continue reading “Meint Smit: Next Steps for InP-based Photonic Integration Technology”
