YOUR PARTNER IN RAPID PHOTONIC PROTOTYPING
“SiPhotonIC uses the nanofabrication center at the Technical University of Denmark, and they can deliver ultra-low loss Silicon photonic devices. They have developed a full spectrum of key photonic components, including grating couplers crosser, MMI, DC, resonator, MZI. In particular, SiPhotonIC offers the possibility to make extremely low loss grating couplers that interface single-mode fibers and the silicon chip, which as far as I know is the state-of-the-art of such devices. My team in the Peking University is working on quantum photonics and quantum information. The remarkable devices made by SiPhotonIC enable the implementation of several nice quantum photonic experiments in our team. The chip is typically delivered in about 2-3 months. I should mention that the customer service is extremely responsive and friendly. Even if something goes wrong in the experiment, their feedback is timely.”
Prof. Jianwei Wang, Peking University of China.
“We successfully realized high-performance integrated multimode devices based on silicon photonics with the help of the advanced nano-fabrication platform of SiPhotonIC. The idea was inspired from the geometrical optics. The feature sizes in the design were extremely tiny. We were very worried about the fabrication since any little distortion would degrade the devices a lot. Thanks a lot for the valuable suggestions, patient explanations and fast feedback during the process. The final chip worked very well and the overall crosstalk between the multi-modes was over 12dB. The advanced results had been published in ACS Photonics. Apart from the high-quality product, the delivery time was also pleasant. It took only around 2 months to get our chip from the layout submitting, which was much faster than other foundries we have used.”
Prof. Yu Yu, Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, China.
“My group is working on designing silicon photonics device such as optical switch, optical filter and chip-scale optical network that require high quality silicon engineering. Technology from some colleges and commercial companies doesn’t satisfy our need of high precision until we have collaboration with SiPhotonIC ApS, Denmark. The SiPhotonIC ApS provided silicon manufacturing down to 5nm and below, which allows us to design and fabricate silicon photonics devices with high quality. Many ideas that limited by the fabrication precision are now verifiable under the help of SiPhotonIC’s technologies. Services from SiPhotonIC are comprehensive. Conventional devices library is offered to simplify the design. The engineer can offer valuable advice on how to design the layout in order to fabricate a device with high quality. The delivery time is less than 3 month from making the order to complete.
I recommend the SiPhotonIC ApS for anyone that need high fabrication precision.”
Prof. Jianji Dong, Huazhong university of science and technology
Welcome to SiPhotonIC!
SiPhotonIC is a high-tech photonic integration company that offers rapid prototyping services of silicon Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs).
SiPhotonIC focuses on providing the best service and fabrication of your silicon PICs with:
- Very quick delivery times that outperform certain MPW and volume production delays. We offer two delivery options (depending on the complexity):
- Fast delivery time (typically 1.5 – 3.5 months FRO)
- Rapid cycle premiums (with a pay-the-extra-only-if-we-ship policy)
- Verified performance for our PDK components (NRE is also possible for big projects with custom processes)
- High-precision fabrication verified each time by SEM imaging
You can design and submit your prototyping project by using:
- Our standard SOI platforms:
We have two SOI platforms in place, 220 nm- and 250 nm-thick SOI for 1550 nm applications, both with verified photonic components and PDK libraries.
- Custom components, stacks & processes
SiPhotonIC allows you also to submit your custom projects for rapid prototyping:
- Custom-designed photonic components based on our platforms’ generic specifications (220 nm / 250nm SOI)
- Custom integration stacks with the materials and layers of your choice
- Custom processes on your provided chips/wafers or part of your fabrication procedure
You can choose from many flexible lithographic, deposition and etching processes. The main lithographic processes offered are:
- E-beam lithography (EBL) for taping out designs that require high-resolution (>20nm) for their structures
- Deep UV (DUV) lithography for taping out designs in volumes that require >200nm resolution for their structures
- Combined EBL & DUV lithography for taping out designs in medium volume but also with high-resolution requirements (<20 nm) for some of their structures.
- Maskless UV lithography for certain fabrication steps and structures with very loose resolution requirements on μm scale.
Many research groups and companies have trusted so far our technology and knowhow to prototype their complex silicon PICs that were published for their novel applications in Science, Nature Communications, Nano Letters, Nanoscale, Scientific Reports, and so on.
