Photonic Component Manufacturing: Moving Toward Automation

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

A shift in assembly methods would help reduce costs and increase production in the optoelectronics manufacturing and packaging industries.

Bruce W. Hueners and Michael K. Formica, Palomar Technologies

Manufacturing the laser diode is complicated by the existence of multiple proprietary techniques and intellectual property barriers together with complex device physics and unique materials. Process engineering, design for manufacturing, design for test, standardization, outsourcing and automation are common procedures in other high-technology industries but remain largely absent in photonics. A better understanding of these processes will enable manufacturers to optimize yields by confronting cost barriers and other obstacles with new assembly methods, where appropriate.
