UK Group to Develop InP-Based Devices

Photonics Spectra
Apr 2006
A collaborative project has received £1.7 million from the UK’s Department of Trade and Industry to develop technologies for the uncooled operation of advanced InP-based photonic components. The 2 1/2-year project, called extended temperature optoelectronics, is intended to develop active devices containing aluminum and improved processes for the metallorganic vapor phase epitaxy growth of semi-insulating current blocking layers using ruthenium doping. Participants include Bookham, the Centre for Integrated Photonics, Epichem, Loughborough Surface Analysis, and the Universities of Sheffield and Surrey.


GLOSSARY
optoelectronics
A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
