General description of the company

VLC Photonics offers photonic integration solutions and services, by integrating multiple optical components and systems into a single monolithic optical chip. Following the fabless design-house model, such photonic integrated circuits are designed and tested at VLC Photonic’s facilities, but manufactured through external fabs on the best suited substrate material according to the application at hand (Indium Phosphide, Gallium Arsenide, Silicon-on-Insulator, Silica/PLC, or Silicon Nitride/TripleX). The main applications for photonic integrated circuits are in the fields of optical telecom and datacom, microwave photonics, optical spectroscopy, fiber sensing, quantum optics and biophotonic applications.
