pectrolab’s Optoelectronic Products Division offers foundry services Sfor epitaxial growth by MOVPE, wafer fabrication, and compo- nent packaging. MOVPE epi growth foundry services include InGaAs/ InP (PIN & APD) sensor wafers, GaInP/GaAs bipolar (HBT) wafers and waveguide modulator, diode wafers on GaAs and InP substrates. Spectrolab possesses one of the largest MOVPE facilities in North America with state-of-the-art produc- tion reactors. Furthermore, Spectrolab offers wafer-fabrication services for InP- and GaAs-based devices as well as packaging for sensors and . Our manufacturing processes use statistical process control with six-sigma targets to meet and exceed customer specifications. Spectro- lab’s goal is to become a leading MOVPE wafer and wafer fabrication foundry services provider for optoelectronic products. With our commit- ment to high quality, short lead times, and aggressive pricing, we are confident our products will meet and exceed customers’ expectations.

Spectrolab Inc., a Boeing Company, founded in 1958, is a world-leading manufacturer of space-qualified photovoltaic solar cells, panels, arrays and solar simulation systems.

Epi-Wafer Foundry & Fabrication Services Spectrolab's MOVPE foundry offers InP and GaAs-based epitaxial wafers for PIN and APD , light-emitting and light-guiding photonic devices, GaInP/GaAs HBT devices, and structures on wafer sizes up to 6". The growth facility is supported by a state-of-the-art characterization facility for material and device evalua- tion. Spectrolab also offers wafer processing foundry services for Ge, InP and GaAs-based devices up to 4”. Epi on 4” InP Wafer Spectrolab's high-throughput MOVPE manufacturing infrastructure allows for high- volume and low-cost production. Additionally, internal device fabrication capability via the use of quick-lot processing for process monitoring and control facilitates high yields. Spectrolab also provides custom development services for unique applications.

Custom sizes and designs available upon request High quality epitaxial InGaAs PIN and Avalanche device structures grown on InP substrates by MOVPE. Photograph of 75 µm Typical device die characteristics: low dark current, low capacitance and Device Dies high quantum efficiency. Photodetectors On January 14, 2002, Spectrolab announced low-cost monitor photodetectors for fiber-optic communication applications. The germanium-based component offers cost savings over conventional arsenide-based monitoring photodetectors without sacrificing performance.

A cost-saving germanium-based photodetector designed for use as a monitor photode- tector in fiber-optic telecommunication systems is commercially available from Spectro- lab. This germanium photodetector offers excellent performance and potential cost savings of approximately 50 percent over indium (InGaAs) monitor .
