Faster Production of Photonic Devices

POSTED 07/05/2022

Alignment is one of the most critical steps in the test and production of SiP and photonic integrated circuits (PIC). It often becomes the bottleneck. New Hardware, Software and Firmware speed up the process by 100 times. Scott Jordan, Physik Instrumente’s Head of Photonics, explains how PI’s advanced motion control and automation systems enable simultaneous active alignment of several optical components, such as waveguides, arrays etc, achieving 99% reduction in alignment times.
