Innolume to increase quantum dot laser production capacity


Innolume, a manufacturer of gallium arsenide-based quantum dot lasers, has announced an expansion of its production capacity to address the surging demand for O-band continuous wave (CW) lasers and semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOAs) in several markets including AI-driven connectivity. The company states that, according to LightCounting Market Research, shipments of 800+ Gbps optical transceivers are expected to nearly double annually over the next five years, driven by the rapid expansion of hyperscale datacentres.

Innolume hopes to meet this escalating demand and solidify a leadership position in this market by expanding its capacity. To this end, the company has placed purchasing orders for Riber CPS 442 laser facet passivation machine and Riber 49 MBE system to expand its existing MBE fleet. This investment is a part of the overall ongoing investment programme to ramp up Innolume’s manufacturing capacities.

Innolume says the quantum dot DFB lasers they produce are known for their high power, superior reliability, efficient operation at elevated temperatures and ability to work with silicon photonic PICs without optical isolator, making them the preferred choice for cloud networking systems navigating the complexities of next-generation connectivity.
