The recent advances of Silicon Photonics Integrated Circuits (PICS) into various new markets (datacomms, sensing, AI, LIDAR etc.) has driven a strong demand for indium phosphide (InP) laser sources. Sivers Photonics is well positioned to support this growing Silicon Photonics eco-system by designing and manufacturing highly customised InP laser devices which are well-suited to hybrid integration through automated passive flip-chip assembly processes. The presentation will discuss the key details of Sivers Photonics InP100 manufacturing platform and how it supports the Silicon Photonics eco-system. It will cover the range of InP light sources, including DFB lasers and reflective semiconductor optical amplifiers (RSOAs), that can be manufactured. The presentation will also cover other key features of the platform, which has been developed to support high volume and low-cost applications.
Dr Andrew McKee received a BSc (Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering and a Ph.D. from the University of Glasgow. His research was in the area of Quantum Well Intermixing (QWI) of InGaAsP MQW structures for Photonic Integrated Circuits. Andrew has extensive experience in all aspects of III-V optoelectronic device design and manufacture, gained with Agilent Technologies. As a founding member of CST Global, he is responsible at Sivers Photonics for the technical roadmap of the company, including developing new device designs and process technologies.
