Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
CARDIFF, Wales, June 22, 2022 — IQE plc, a supplier of compound semiconductor wafer products and advanced materials, signed a multiyear agreement with Lumentum for the supply of epiwafers supporting 3D sensing, lidar for automotive, and optical networking applications.

Effective immediately, the agreement is focused on high-volume production of epiwafers that will be used across Lumentum’s portfolio of laser products, in particular to enable lidar for autonomous vehicles, where IQE will be the epitaxy partner of choice for this technology.

GLOSSARY
wafer
A cross-sectional slice cut from an ingot of either single-crystal, fused, polycrystalline or amorphous material that has refined surfaces either lapped or polished. Wafers are used either as substrates for electronic device manufacturing or as optics. Typically, they are made of silicon, quartz, gallium arsenide or indium phosphide.
lidar
An acronym of light detection and ranging, describing systems that use a light beam in place of conventional microwave beams for atmospheric monitoring, tracking and detection functions. Ladar, an acronym of laser detection and ranging, uses laser light for detection of speed, altitude, direction and range; it is often called laser radar.
