Singapore’s Advanced Micro Foundry (AMF), a spin off from IME, A*STAR focused on providing foundry capabilities for silicon photonics, has announced the availability of a multi-layer Silicon Nitride-on-Silicon (SiN-on-Si) integration platform for photonic integrated circuits (PICs). The platform enables dense integration of 3D photonic nanostructures, which the company says enables small footprints, low loss, improved performance, and fabrication tolerance.

LightCounting, in a newly released “Optical Communications Market Forecast Report,” predicts that sales of optical transceivers to mega data center applications will nearly offset declines in demand from telecom systems applications. As a result, overall transceiver sales declines in 2018 will be limited to less than 3%. Looking ahead, LightCounting also identifies opportunities for growth in the near term.

University of Michigan physicists have led the development of a device the size of a match head that can bend light inside a crystal to generate synchrotron radiation in a lab. When physicists bend very intense beams of charged particles in circular orbits near the speed of light, this bending throws off bits of light, or X-rays, called synchrotron radiation.

Consolidation has hit the optical systems space, as Infinera has announced its intention to buy fellow optical transport and SDN platform vendor Coriant for a total consideration of $430 million in cash and stock. The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.

The European Union (EU) Horizon-2020 project UNIQORN – officially, “UNIQORN – Affordable Quantum Communication for Everyone: Revolutionizing the Quantum Ecosystem from Fabrication to Application” – kicked off last month with a goal of developing manufacturable technology that can support quantum communications. The three-year effort received funding by the European Commission within the first call of the H2020 Quantum Flagship funding program.

Driven by the development of data communications and the boom of Internet’s popularity, the sweet spot of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) has evolved. It has been, until recently, in short-distance data communication, but in the last few years, with the development of the latest generation of smartphones, VCSELs have made their way into high volume consumer applications. Automotive applications, such as Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) and gesture recognition, are expected to follow.
