Syntec Optics Launches Fabless Integrated Photonics Manufacturing

Facebook X LinkedIn Email
Advanced optics manufacturer Syntec Optics has expanded its capabilities to include manufacturing of components for integrated photonics circuits (PIC) and packaging capabilities to satisfy the needs for low-cost and low-loss photonics.

The techniques developed by Syntec Optics can make small photonics readers for PIC chips; off-chip optics including interconnects, collimators, and arrays for visible and infrared spectra; and metrology procedures. In addition to these existing techniques, it has now invested in tools to support the design of PICs, design-for-manufacturing considerations for PIC fabs, and passive alignment of components for packaging.

Syntec Optics is North America’s largest privately owned polymer optics and optomechanical component and assembly provider. The company recently renovated a state-of-the-art 85,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in the metropolitan Rochester, N.Y., area.
