While the “dot.com crash” at the beginning of the millennium may have temporarily dented the initial enthusiasm for optical networking to deliver high speed data communications, there has been a steady growth in optical content within communication networks and successful mass-commercialization of optoelectronics in some other areas such as LED lighting for industrial, domestic and automotive end users as well as VCSELs for facial recognition.  The photonics market was estimated to be USD 593.7 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 837.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 7.1% between 2020 to 2025[1].

SPTS has been serving the photonics industry for over 20 years. Now, with a range of recent end-product innovations and an increased demand for faster, energy-efficient data transfer due to 5G, IoT, autonomous driving and AI, SPTS has seen a renewed interest in our etch and deposition processes to manufacture optical waveguides, VCSELs, edge emitting LASERs, µLEDs and optical MEMS.

In this webinar we will discuss the etch and deposition process requirements and challenges to create these photonic devices on a range of substrate types including silicon and compound semiconductors and showcase the breadth of our experience gained over the past 20 years, working with a broad range of photonic device developers and manufacturers.
