SMI awarded Air Force Phase I STTR to develop Si based Laser
Posted on April 27, 2006
Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) has been awarded a Phase I STTR by the Air Force to develop a Si based laser. Electro-optic devices are predominantly manufactured in InP and LiNbO3 and consist of many discreet components coupled together. A long-desired solution is to integrate the diverse components into a single compact chip.

A further goal is to achieve this in Si and thereby gain all the benefits of large-scale economical Si manufacturing. SMI is presently involved in a Phase II STTR effort to develop Si modulator; this Phase I project will build on that effort. If successful, the two programs in combination will reach a long way toward the realization of fully integrated Si photonics. Cornell University, a world leader in Si photonics development, is the STTR partner in this program.
