Upending a glue-based market with laser technology
Photonect is reshaping the future of optical fiber to photonic chip connections. Within each optical transceiver, an optical fiber the size of a single human hair must be attached to a photonic chip. The razor-thin size of an optical fiber makes it difficult to precisely connect it to a chip and improper placement reduces its performance and increases power consumption. Photonect’s innovative technique replaces traditional glue with lasers to solve a key problem — connection accuracy and efficiency. The technique can significantly lower data centers’ power consumption at half the cost and 10 times the speed of glue-based adhesion methods, while increasing signal performance 4x.
