OTTAWA -- MetroPhotonics Inc., a leading developer of photonic integrated circuits (PICs), today announced the completion of their World Class Indium Phosphide fabrication facility. This semiconductor manufacturing facility complements MetroPhotonics’ existing design and development expertise to produce industry leading monolithically integrated optical components. “Our fab facility optimizes device performance through the combination of design, materials science, and process engineering, this is essential in meeting our goal of developing high quality integrated devices in high volume,” said David Clark, CEO of MetroPhotonics. “MetroPhotonics has strategically aligned with outside partners for packaging and epitaxial material supply.” MetroPhotonics has achieved ground breaking results on integrated devices fabricated within the new facility, through successful integration of high resolution lithography with high density plasma etching to produce ultra high smoothness, optically perfect reflecting surfaces for it’s highly compact echelle grating DWDM solutions. These coupled with MetroPhotonics integrated attenuator and photodetector elements allow for replacing discrete / hybrid in-line assemblies with a monolithic device.MetroPhotonics is now poised to execute a fast and secure ramp into production following prototype development. The new cleanroom facilities at MetroPhotonics are 10,000 sq ft at Class 100/1000/10,000.MetroPhotonics Inc.
