Since the first laser diodes and single-mode optical fibers of the early 1990s, the high cost and labor-intensiveness of testing and assembling photonic components have impacted production economics and impeded scaling. With the advent of Silicon Photonics and today’s complex, multi-channel devices, and anticipating adoption of photonics into major new applications fields outside the data center, the newest approaches to improving manufacturing efficiency and yield are seeing high demand.Continue reading “Addressing the high cost of photonic test and assembly through technology and partnerships”

Optical elements such as light-pipes and lenses allow physical coupling of the PICs with the external environment. Optimal design is a critical part of the design for manufacturing (DFM) process and can deliver impact in terms of increasing both brightness of the source and signal to noise ratio of the optical sensor. One of the biggest challenges in photonic integrated circuits (PICs) is to design a system that continues interacting with the external environment without a loss of quality over time.Continue reading “Engineering and Regulatory Pathways for Designing Lenses and Light Pipes for PICs in Wearable Medical Devices”
