    Applied Nanotools has completed a recent test of the propagation loss for strip waveguides made from 220 nm SOI, 2 micron BOX. Updated propagation loss numbers can be found here.

  • Upcoming January 2017 Run; Buffer Oxide Change

    October 17, 2016

    We will be offering another silicon photonics MPW run in January 2017. The submission deadline is 11:59 PM MST, Friday, December 30, 2016. Please note that as of this run, we will be transitioning our 220 nm SOI fabrication to 2.0 μm buffer oxide. This change from 3.0 μm is a result of our wafer supplier discontinuing the 3.0 μm product. Although this wafer choice will further align our e-beam process with large-scale foundry services, the change may impact some designs that have been optimized for 3 μm BOX.

  • Upcoming Fabrication Run: October 2016

    August 20, 2016

    We are performing our second fabrication run on October 10th, 2016 (extended from September 25, 2016). The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM MST
