LIGHT TEC www.lighttec.fr

Light Tec offers optical design tools and optical engineering services. Light Tec’s team is made of 18 employees at 2 locations, one in Hyères (France) and one in Munich (Germany).

The tools proposed include:

- Optical design software tools (Code V, LightTools, LucidShape, RSOFT) + technical support and training.

- Scattering measurement tools including the development and sales of industrial products (“Mini-Diff” and “Reflet”).

With a high-skilled team of optical engineers, the company also offers consulting and measurement services.


PHOTON DESIGN www.photond.com

Photon Design was started in 1992 and now provides a wide range of innovative photonics CAD tools to 35 countries around the world, supplying most of the World's leading photonics companies, universities and government research labs. CAD products include tools for both passive and active component and optical circuit modelling.



THORLABS www.thorlabs.com

Thorlabs, a vertically integrated photonics products manufacturer, was founded in 1989 to serve the laser and electro-optics research market. As that market has spawned a multitude of technical innovations, Thorlabs has extended its core competencies in an effort to play an ever increasing role serving the Photonics Industry at the research end, as well as the industrial, life science, medical, and defense segments. The organization’s highly integrated and diverse manufacturing assets include semiconductor fabrication of laser diodes, optical amplifiers, lithium niobate modulators, quantum cacscade/interband cascade lasers, and VCSEL lasers; fiber towers for drawing glass optical fibers (silica, fluoride, tellurite, and hollow core); MBE/MOCVD epitaxial wafer growth reactors; extensive glass and metal fabrication facilities; advanced thin film deposition capabilities; and optomechanical and optoelectronic shops.



MICOS IBERIA  www.pimicos.es

Micos Iberia  is the spanish subsiday of the company PI (Physik Instrumente). PI develops and manufactures high precision positioning systems for a wide field of markets as Optical metrology, industrial manufacturing, Semiconductor, Astronomy/space science and Photonics.

In silicon photonics the test and packaging tasks require nanoscale alignments routines that cannot be performed using visual or mechanical references. Instead, these routines must optimize the optical throughput itself.

With its decades of experience as supplier of precision positioning systems for the semiconductor industry, PI can present now a system that meets the requirements of parallel optical alignment in several degrees of freedom. The FMPA (Fast Multi-Channel Photonics Alignment) system is based on a combination of a high-speed piezo scanner, a micropositioning system (XYZ or 6-axis hexapod), and a high-performance controller with firmware-based routines for optical alignment. Complex alignment procedures can be achieved with it in a sub second scale.

VLC PHOTONICS  www.vlcphotonics.com

VLC Photonics aims to be a complete but flexible partner in photonic integration, thanks to its deep expertise in the whole integration process, from the preliminary feasibility studies, to fabrication platform selection, optical chip design, foundry and packager brokerage, and chip characterization and test. Our know-how includes multiple passive and active components like AWGs, MMIs, Echelle gratings, modulators, lasers, switches, filters, etc. VLC Photonics has been working for more than 15 years in the field, with experience in all major international fabs (+15) in all main material substrates (silicon photonics, InP, GaAs, PLC, SiN, TriPleX, etc.). Backed up by this long term relationship with all the major foundries, the company is now releasing a report providing an extensive technical coverage of manufacturing providers of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) to facilitate decision making and long term planning. Our field of expertise is mostly in optical telecommunications. datacom and optical interconnects, microwave photonics, quantum optics, and sensing systems like fiber sensor interrogators or biophotonics Iab-on-a-chip.
