Vector Photonics Joins EPIC
UK laser start-up joins Europe’s largest network of photonics companies
UK laser start-up Vector Photonics has joined the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) - the largest, active, network of photonics-related companies in Europe. EPIC's membership, currently 644 companies, spans many industry sectors, including photonics integrated circuits; optical components; lasers and sensor production; optical fibre communications; and further industries enabled by photonics-related technologies.
Neil Martin, CEO at Vector Photonics, said: “Vector Photonics is pleased to join EPIC. It has worldwide recognition and influence, providing a strong, network environment for photonics-enabled companies. EPIC seeks to facilitate technological and commercial growth for members and to identity new and emerging photonics markets for research and development. EPIC is a critical part of the European photonics industry.”
Jose Pozo, director of technology and innovation at EPIC, added: “Vector Photonics brings an exceptional contribution to the consortium through its revolutionary new, PCSEL-based, compound semiconductor laser technology. Neil Martin was a keynote speaker at our AGM in Glasgow, last year. It's great to have his new company amongst our membership and to retain his photonics expertise within our organisation.”
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
