Hamamatsu Photonics has partnered with Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) to boost the development of photonic chips around Europe.

The alliance will extend its reach to European companies through PhotonHub Europe, facilitating collaborative efforts with partner research institutes across Europe to provide a supply chain for photonic chip development.

The collaboration aims to tap into the VUB photonics research group, B-Phot, Professor Hugo Thienpont, and Hamamatsu’s industry experience to support companies in various stages of device development.

Key areas of collaboration include providing support to companies in photonics feasibility studies, proof-of-concept demonstrations, prototyping, and quality control. The partnership will explore the development of photonic modules and subsystems to enhance Hamamatsu Photonics’ product portfolio.

‘Pilot Lines’, a new service aimed at bridging the gap between conceptualization and market-ready photonics products. Pilot Lines, led by Hamamatsu Photonics and PhotonHub Europe, will facilitate the seamless transition of photonics-based technologies from early-stage development to commercialization.

PhotonHub Europe is a full-service digital innovation hub coordinated by Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). It provides European companies with open access and guided orientation to a broad range of photonics services, capabilities and expertise through its network of over 50 partner organisations.

The EU-funded initiative supports first-time users and early adopters in achieving the wider and faster uptake, integration, and deployment of photonic technologies in innovative products across a diverse range of industry sectors.

 “This collaboration signifies an exciting opportunity to combine VUB and PhotonHub’s expertise with Hamamatsu’s advanced technology to drive innovation and support the growth of our customers’ businesses, » said Marco Mayer, Strategic Business Development Manager Europe at Hamamatsu Photonics.

The pilot lines approach will be discussed in a series of Technology Days across Europe in May.;;
