GLASGOW, Scotland, Jan. 27, 2021 — Vector Photonics is leading the £1.5 million BLOODLINE project, an international consortium project developing PCSEL-based (photonic crystal surface-emitting laser) chips for 3D metal laser printing, funded by Innovate UK. According to a 2019 report from SmarTech Analysis, cited by Vector, the market is expected to reach $10 billion by 2025. The U.K.’s Compound Semiconductor Applications (CSA) Catapult will undertake chip reliability testing for the initiative, with two Japanese companies also participating — one a semiconductor manufacturer and the other an industrial equipment manufacturer — according to a press release from Vector.
