Most of III-V Epi’s revenue, in the last year, has come from devices supplied for industrial applications with ongoing production requirements. This demonstrates that III-V Epi has met a clear need in the worldwide photonics industry as a trusted manufacturer of prototype and lower volume, III-V epitaxial structures by MBE and MOCVD.
Calum McGregor, director of III-V Epi, said, “As much as ninety percent of III-V Epi’s turnover is coming from industrial customers in high-growth, telecoms, datacoms, additive manufacturing, LiDAR, and multiple optical sensing industries. This is great commercially, as these customers are typically using our devices within live product ranges with growing supply requirements. This industrial business is also informed by the fast-turnaround, academic projects that make up the remainder of our portfolio.
“Industrial customers are using our specialist range of design, manufacture, test, and characterisation services to expedite device manufacture and bring new products to market as quickly as possible.”
