III-V Epi’s CTO Richard Hogg being made Professor of Photonics at Aston University
III-V Epi Ltd of Glasgow, Scotland, UK — which provides a fast-turnaround molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) service for custom compound semiconductor wafer design, manufacturing, test and characterization — says that in May its chief technology officer & technical advisor professor Richard Hogg is taking on a new role as Professor of Photonics at Aston Institute of Photonics Technology (AIPT) in Birmingham. The new role is a non-teaching position, allowing Hogg to focus more of his time on photonics research, development and commercialization. His CTO role with III-V Epi will be unchanged.

AIPT conducts national and international research, industrial and commercialization projects in medical, healthcare, telecoms and datacoms. The institute has over 100 industrial partners, including Airbus, IBM, Infinera, Thales, BAE Systems and Nokia Bell Labs and collaborations with over 80 other photonic centers worldwide.
“I am delighted to be joining AIPT in a new role that not only progresses my academic career but also draws on my industrial experience at NTT Basic Research Laboratories, Toshiba Cambridge Research Laboratories, and Agilent Technologies,” comments Hogg. “My CTO role at III-V Epi will continue, unchanged, along with the collaboration III-V Epi has with the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow,” he adds. “It is my hope that my role at AIPT will present an excellent opportunity to bring III-V Epi’s fast-turnaround wafer design, manufacturing, test and characterization services to a new and wider audience.”
