Bay Photonics exhibiting at this year’s National Quantum Technologies Showcase on Friday 5th November in London
Bay Photonics will be exhibiting at this year’s National Quantum Technology Showcase (stand number 3) being held on Friday the 5th of November at the Business Design Centre, London.
The event, delivered by Innovate UK, with KTN support will be showcasing 60+ exhibitions demonstrating growing commercialisation and industrialisation of quantum technologies in the UK resulting from the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme (UKNQTP) which is investing in excess of £1B over 10 years.
Bay Photonics are participating in multiple projects within the program and we will be highlighting different aspects of our engineering expertise. The image above shows an optical transceiver (left) and a single frequency laser (right) developed within the SPLICE and SIDEWINDER projects respectively. In both of these projects, Bay Photonics have delivered industrialized optical modules capable of real world operation.
Bay Photonics are also participating in AIRQKD, SPIDAR and QFOUNDRY, which are all projects which aim to provide the UK with a national quantum supply chain in critical technologies and capabilities. In each project, Bay Photonics is developing photonic integrated circuit (PIC) packaging solutions to enable the delicate semiconductor chips, on which much of the quantum technology depends, to be integrated optically, electronically, thermally and mechanically with the real world. In addition, the development of hermetic packaging capability with the ability to package the chips either in a vacuum, or inert gas atmosphere will provide longer device lifetimes and enhanced performance. Package examples offered by Bay Photonics are shown below.
About Bay Photonics – Bay Photonics have been providing photonic packaging solutions since 2007 and have experience in hermetic packaging of photonic components such as laser die, detectors, and PICS. Bay are also experts in development and building small, robustly packaged micro-optic and optical fiber based photonic modules and lasers. Bay Photonics are located within the Electronics & Photonics Innovation Centre (EPIC), Paignton, Devon.
