Europe is at the threshold of a technological revolution - the application of the power of light to solve our greatest global challenges. As a fast, compact, energy efficient and therefore sustainable option, it is suitable for many applications and will be an essential component of the societal challenges of the future. An important future market is the photonic chip market. The new assembly machine presented by the Fraunhofer Project Center will allow large-scale photonic chip production to become a reality in Twente. This is a first, since this high-precision work has been performed by hand for small series until now. It is therefore an important step towards mass production of the fast and energy-efficient chips for telecommunications, among others. The application has been developed in collaboration with PHIX Photonics Assembly, an international innovator in the field of assembly and packaging services for the photonics industry.more info
