PowerPhotonic Ltd., Fraunhofer UK, Optoscribe Ltd., and Optocap Ltd. have been awarded an Innovate UK grant to develop novel optics for miniaturized RGB laser sources as part of a £900,000 ($1.2 million) project.

The co-funding will be used to develop and demonstrate an innovative integrated photonic package for RGB laser sources with a step-change reduction in component size versus the current state-of-the-art. The consortium includes Optocap, an optical component integration and packaging company, as the project lead; PowerPhotonic, a micro-optic technology developer in optical surface formation using unique wafer scale laser micromachining; and Optoscribe, an ultrafast laser company that forms structures and waveguides in glass. The fourth partner, research and technology organization Fraunhofer UK, will develop the waveguide writing process and build the project demonstrator.

A panel of experts at Innovate UK, the U.K.’s innovation agency, awarded the grant, judging the consortium’s application as a compelling business case for miniaturized RGB sources.
