Skorpios uses CMOS process to realize tunable laser

by:Caodahai     2021-08-21
On March 5, Lightwave reported that Skorpios Technologies, a silicon photonics technology company, has successfully demonstrated a tunable wavelength laser based on CMOS technology that can support the entire C-band. Skorpios predicts that they can officially commercialize this product within the year.   The laser is based on Skorpios' template-assisted custom process STAB, which can bond III-V epitaxial layers to CMOS wafers. This technology ensures the simultaneous manufacture of lasers and other silicon photonic devices based on CMOS technology. Because the III-V epitaxial layer in the final product is enclosed in silicon material, the related laser packaging problem is also solved. The only remaining problem is fiber coupling.   Skorpios claimed that their goal is to develop a functional module macrocell similar to ASIC, and develop various optical device products on this basis. The functions implemented by these macrocells include multiplexing, switching, multiplexing and so on. The first Macrocell is being developed in response to customer needs.   According to the introduction on the Skorpios website, the company was established in July 2009 and is mainly dedicated to the development of CMOS monolithic integrated active optical devices. The company claims that their technology will bring revolutionary changes to the optoelectronic value chain. Skorpios' investors include Ericsson, Nokia Siemens, Deutsche Telekom and others.  Skorpios's main management team comes from Emcore. Its founder and chairman of the board of directors, CEO, Stephen Krashlick was previously the general manager of Emcore's optical fiber business and a member of the board of directors of Emcore in Langfang. Before Emcore, he worked at Optium, JDSU and Bell Labs. Skorpios’ chief scientist Dr. Amit Mizrahi graduated from Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, and later engaged in silicon photonics technology research at the University of California, San Diego. He has made pioneering contributions to the research and development of ultra-small semiconductor lasers. (The above is edited and compiled by the metal laser cutting machine from the Internet.
