The investment into the fab strengthens manufacturing infrastructure, allowing for an increase in delivery capacity to support production, whilst enabling scale up to increased production volumes.

Building on their existing range of automated toolsets, Sivers have recently installed the Voyager from Raith, an advanced electron beam lithography system.  To support this and bolster metrology capability, they have added the Bruker Dimension Icon Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) from JEOL.  These key additions will facilitate a quicker development cycle for both new and existing products, including Sivers Photonics’ advanced DFB lasers for silicon photonics, datacomm and optical sensing markets.

Sivers Photonics’ investment will further strengthen and grow key partnerships with new and existing customers as they progress from R&D via pilot production through to volume manufacture. The investment will facilitate further business development of advanced semiconductor laser devices that are critical to photonic integrated circuits (PICs) used in next-generation artificial intelligence, data-centre and quantum technology applications.

Sivers Photonics are proud to be one of the few independent foundries worldwide offering fully integrated design and manufacturing services for customised III-V photonic devices. The ongoing investment in the fab will strengthen our customer offering, supporting higher production volumes.
