EpiWorks to manufacture epiwafers for POET's monolithic optoelectronics process platform

POET Technologies Inc of San Jose, CA, USA — which has developed the proprietary planar optoelectronic technology (POET) platform for monolithic fabrication of integrated III-V-based electronic and optical devices on a single semiconductor wafer — and EpiWorks Inc of Champaign-Urbana, IL, USA (which manufactures epitaxial wafers for optical components, wireless devices and high-speed communication applications) have announced a multi-year development and production supply agreement.

EpiWorks will manufacture wafers for POET's monolithic optoelectronics process platform using its metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) production toolset.

"This partnership is POET's latest advance in its lab-to-fab commercialization initiative in calendar 2016," POET's CEO Dr Suresh Venkatesan. "Utilizing high-performance, manufacturable epiwafer technology is a key to this initiative, and we are happy to be working with EpiWorks for MOCVD-based development and production," he adds. "We are pleased with the early promising results EpiWorks demonstrated with MOCVD, which will provide a more manufacturable alternate path to molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) techniques and accelerate our technology maturity. To build on our recent successes working together, we formalized this supply agreement to enable further acceleration of our program," Venkatesan continues.

"By establishing a development and supply agreement, our companies expect to be working closely together for several years, allowing the technology to continuously and rapidly improve long after it is scaled into production," says EpiWorks' Quesnell Hartmann.
