"To build a major optical integrated circuit business using
Photonic Crystal technology"
Mesophotonics Ltd. is a fabless integrated optical circuit company.
The company’s Photonic Crystal technology and expertise will
facilitate the development of integrated optics for multiple industries,
based on established Silicon substrate technology, by:
- Creating new optoelectronic circuits from miniature photonic
- Leveraging the benefits of integrated electronics and optics
on a single substrate
- Decreasing time to market by combining the team’s expertise
in fabrication, modelling, design and characterisation.
Spun-out from Southampton University in 2001, Mesophotonics aims
to commercialise more than 35 man-years’ research and associated
Intellectual Property in nano-scale Photonic Crystals.
The company will design and sell integrated optical and opto-electronic
circuits based on unique Photonic Crystal elements, addressing multiple
markets at OEM level. The customer offering will include collaborative,
product specific applications engineering, reducing the customers’
overhead in dealing with photonics. This will give customers lower
risk and shorter time to market and open new market opportunities
Mesophotonics will also license design libraries to manufacturers,
allowing them to fabricate their own products incorporating the
company’s Photonic Crystal components.
