Zia Laser Inc., a developer of Quantum Dot (QD) communications laser technology, and Emcore Corp. have agreed upon a sublease and contract manufacturing arrangement for high volume epitaxial growth and laser diode processing. The agreement includes Zia subleasing cleanroom and supporting infrastructure for the operation of its own MBE reactor and technical support by Emcore in the areas of material characterization, wafer processing, and device packaging.

"The agreement strengthens our ability to produce high volume manufacturing grade QD epitaxy and laser devices to customers demanding performance not attainable with existing Quantum Well (QW) laser structures," said Joe Dixon, COO of Zia. "We are confident in a synergistic relationship due to Emcore's vast experience in materials, optoelectronics and fiber optics that is further augmented by their latest acquisitions of Alvesta and Agere's OE West Operations."
