Partnerships with YTEL Photonics Inc. Korea

ECU has a number of projects with YTEL Photonics, including the development of multi-port tunable lasers. This project employs Electron Science Research Institute's expertise in Opto-VLSI processing to develop a highly flexible new multi-wavelength and multi-band capable laser, which is cost-effective and sofware-reconfgurable.

YTEL Photonics and ECU has a joint patent on tunable fibre lasers, and YTEL Photonics is supporting the development of a tunable fibre laser prototype. This invention uses advanced Opto-VLSI technology to improve multi-wavelength laser performance. The main target market of this tunable fibre laser is optical communications (but has other applications such as medical, sensing, and instrumentation).

A second project with YTEL Photonics focuses on the development of advanced technological processes for the manufacture and characterization of specialized optical waveguides containing functional material insets, which enable the fabrication of various components for future optical networks, as well as new light sources for various applications. This project provides important development outcomes for the industry partner and generates high-quality research results for ECU in the areas of specialized optical waveguide manufacture.

A third project focuses on the development of advanced technological processes for the manufacture and characterization of specialized optical waveguides containing functional material insets, which enable the fabrication of various components for future optical networks, as well as new light sources for various applications. The significance of the project is that it will provide outcomes for the industry partner and generate research results for ECU in the areas of specialized optical waveguide manufacture. It will further advance knowledge in the areas of materials science and micro photonic device design and fabrication.
