WARWICK, R.I., Aug. 2 -- Infinite Group Inc. said that it has selected Orlando, Fla., for its Infinite Photonics Inc. (IP) subsidiary and the IP Grating Coupled Surface Emitting Laser (IP GCSEL) diode facility. The facility will be located at the Central Florida Research Park (CFRP), adjacent to the main University of Central Florida campus, near UCF's School of Optics/CREOL (Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers.)
"We selected Orlando for its quality of life, Florida's commitment to the photonics industry, and the quality of research staff and facilities at CREOL," said Jeff Bullington, Infinite Photonics' president. "We have been certified by the governor's Office as a Semiconductor Diode (Silicon) Facility and accordingly are exempted from sales and use taxes under Florida's Semiconductor, Defense and Space Technology Facility program. This certification sealed the decision for us. We intend to ramp up product development, the GCSEL diode manufacturing capability in Florida, and develop additional sales, marketing and administrative infrastructure."
