III-V Photonic Integrated Circuits

Indium Phosphide is used to produce efficient lasers, sensitive photodetectors, and modulators in the wavelength window typically used for telecommunications. As a compound semiconductor bandgap material, InP is the most important material for the generation of laser signals and the detection and conversion of those signals back to electronic form. NeoPhotonics designs and manufactures laser and detector chips in our own Indium Phosphide fabs and integrates them with silicon photonics circuits using Advanced Hybrid Photonic Integration. InP-based modulators and detectors are also used for demanding applications such as long-haul and undersea systems.
