ENT-EPITAXY DIVISION OPENS UP NEW PRODUCT FIELDS AND EXPAND ITS EXISTING PORTFOLIO TO VCSELs, QCLs AND IR PHOTODETECTORS

01.02.2020

ENT, Vigo System’s epitaxy division, producing high-grade III-V compound semiconductor epitaxial for photonic and micro-electronic applications, has leveraged its core technological capabilities to extend its epiwafers offerings to other innovative products:

  • Quantum cascade laser diodes with the emission wavelength ranging from the MWIR to the LWIR (3.5 – 20 mm) for spectroscopic applications such as remote sensing of environmental gases and pollutants in the atmosphere; for security such as vehicular cruise control in conditions of poor visibility, collision avoidance radar or industrial process control; for medical diagnostics applications such as breath analyzers, as well as for identification and quantifications of complex heavy molecules found in toxic chemicals, explosives and drugs.
  • VCSEL – the vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser with the laser resonator consisting of two distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) mirrors parallel to the wafer surface with a multi quantum well active region, used in communication systems, LIDARs, printers,  time-of-flight sensors, autonomous vehicles, robots and drones.
  • IR Photodetectors on the basis of MOCVD compound semiconductors such as InGaAs.

Vigo System’s epitaxy division offers a broad range of high quality epi-wafers, which can be produced both in large volumes as well as in small test batches. With its extensive R&D services ENT is able to considerably increase its innovation capabilities to better serve its clients, helping them seize new opportunities, bring their operation to the highest level of performance and add value to their investment.
