The Challenge for Indium Phosphide Photonic Development and the Optical Foundry
MEETINGS & FORUMS PUBLICATION—2006, 88 pages
Indium Phosphide, InP, is a semiconductor material with properties that make it particularly suitable for optoelectronic devices. Optical communications requirements drove its initial development. Recently, the applications for InP semiconductor devices have broadened to include high-speed electronics and optical sensors. This report examines the current state of the InP device market and its future direction. Addresses challenges for a pure foundry play and the role for InP devices. Seeks to find the best ways to address the needs for InP device development in the U.S.
