Brolis To Start Silicon Photonics R&D In Belgium


New division will design integrated photonic systems combining III-V technology and CMOS-compatible PIC technology

Brolis Semiconductors, based in Lithuania, has announced a new R&D division - Brolis Semiconductors BVBA in Ghent, Belgium - that will focus on the design and development of novel cutting-edge integrated photonic systems. These will combine Brolis' proprietary III-V technology of long-wave infrared light sources and CMOS-compatible photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology.

Special emphasis will be directed towards development of a new OEM GaSb/Silicon-on-insulator system-on-a-chip laser sensor technology for sensing applications in the 1.5 - 3.5 micron spectral range and beyond for healthcare and industrial markets.
