Haleos, Inc., a leading optical manufacturing services provider, today announced the availability of its new and flux-less sub-micron alignment and bonding capability for high volume electro-optic assembly and manufacturing.
Conventional industry-wide bonders typically produce alignment and bonding specifications of plus or minus five microns. Current generation applications demand precision tolerances for manufacturing and packaging of laser die, VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) Pronounced "vixel." A type of laser diode that emits light from its surface rather than its edge. A VCSEL's circular beam is easy to couple with a fiber, and due to its surface-emission architecture, can be tested , and integrating silicon optical bench for transceiver (TRANSmitter reCEIVER) An electronic device or circuit that transmits and receives analog or digital signals. It comes in many forms; for example, a transponder on a satellite, a network adapter in the computer or the circuits in a cellphone. modules.
The Company's precision tolerance serves applications that require sub-micron mounting on silicon substrates, InP, InGaAsP and a mix of other III-V semiconductor materials Semiconductor materials are insulators at absolute zero temperature that conduct electricity in a limited way at room temperature (see also Semiconductor). The defining property of a semiconductor material is that it can be doped with impurities that alter its electronic properties . By achieving sub-micron tolerances, coupling efficiencies (e.g. laser into fiber) are significantly improved and directly result in increased manufacturability of critical pass/fail devices. In many applications, it eliminates the need for active alignment, and its short cycle time allows for high volume processing.
"For our customers, sub-micron bonding accuracy translates into a vast positive impact," said David Sherrer, Haleos president and chief executive officer. "Access to this technology is vital for developing next generation devices."
Haleos Inc., The New ACT MicroDevices, is a rapidly growing, privately-held fiber optics fiber optics, transmission of digitized messages or information by light pulses along hair-thin glass fibers. Each fiber is surrounded by a cladding having a high index of refractance so that the light is internally reflected and travels the length of the fiber and photonics photonics, the science and technology based on and concerned with the controlled flow of photons, or light particles. It is the optical equivalent of electronics, and the two technologies coexist in such innovations as optoelectronic integrated circuits. optical manufacturing services company headquartered in Blacksburg, Virginia Blacksburg is an incorporated town located in Montgomery County, Virginia. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 39,573, making it one of Virginia's larger towns. . Haleos is a leading designer, developer and manufacturer of advanced wafer-level microphotonic components, optical interconnects and component integration solutions that enable next generation optical networks. The Company is developing proprietary next generation technologies and integrating them with current products, to significantly change the economics and performance of optical components and systems.
