The need for DFB laser is continuously increasing and with it the need to create precise gratings fast and easy. Find out the 5 reasons why Raith's EBL tools are proven as the best way to tackle the challenges given by DFB laser makers here:
Congratulation to our customers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) who received the Gips-Schüle Research Award for the World’s Smallest Photodetector!
Sascha Mühlbrandt, Christian Koos, and Manfred Kohl of KIT’s Institute of Microtechnology/Institute of Photonics and Quantum Electronics were honored for their work on plasmonic photodetectors which combine an ultra-compact footprint with electro-optical bandwidths of hundreds of GHz.
More detailed information can be found in the paper "Silicon-plasmonic internal-photoemission detector for 40 Gbit/s data reception" which was published in Optica: https://doi.org/10.1364/OPTICA.3.000741
With the EBPG5200 at IMT the record-breaking ultracompact devices can be fabricated within a week. Nowadays their architecture can even be expanded from three to four layers which is only possible due to the high overlay accuracy of the patterning system. We are excited for our customers and eager to see where the research will lead in the future.
