    September 14, 2018. Latest research results from Brolis Semiconductors sensor and MBE team have been published in the OSA Biomedical Optics Express journal. Paper summarizes the development of beyond state-of-the-art GaSb swept-wavelength laser platform for the use in non-invasive in-vivo spectroscopic sensing of blood constituent. Experimental results of spectroscopic sensing of key biomolecules is presented – glucose, lactate, serum albumin. Furthermore, experimental proof of non-invasive sensing through skin is demonstrated – providing clear motivation to re-visit non-invasive optical sensing technology for glucose and other molecules. Spectroscopic sensor, described in the paper utilizes a MEMS-tunable external cavity laser diode concept developed jointly with CSEM ( Switzerland) under the EUROSTARS-2 project “SWIRsense”. Medical aspects of the work were supervised by Prof. Žilvinas Dambrauskas and Prof. Antanas Gulbinas of LSMU (Lithuania). The ultimate goal is to transfer the sensor from the table-top concept to a system-on-a-chip concept based on hybrid GaSb/Si approach, which is a running internal project at Brolis between Vilnius and Ghent RnD teams.

    “We see this paper as a teaser for the technology we have been developing at Brolis for the last 5 years. Our team was active in building up the concept, theoretical models and literally creating components that do not exist on the market today. Without the unique capability of full in-house technology access, this would be impossible. Currently our sensor is deployed for building up the library necessary for the validation model, where we already see incredible performance such as sensing lactate and glucose in the entire 1-30 mmol/l range with RMSEP of ~ 0.3 mmol/l and correlation of 99%, ” says Augustinas Vizbaras, head of the chip and the sensor technology at Brolis.

    June 11-15, 2018 Ghent, Belgium. Brolis Semiconductors is proud to sponsor the 3rd ePIXfab Silicon Photonics Summer School!The summer school runs from 11th to 15th June 2018  and is followed by the design course from 18th to 22nd June 2018 at Ghent University (Belgium). The two modules can be taken together or separately.

    The Silicon Photonics Summer School is designed to equally benefit the beginners and experts in the field of silicon photonics. It will expose the participants to the fundamental concepts of silicon photonics. Also, it will provide the participants with a unique opportunity to get a strong insight into the latest developments in the field, and give insight in the many application fields where silicon photonic is, or will be, making an impact. Renowned speakers in the field of silicon photonics will showcase hot topics and latest research results for various applications of silicon photonics. The summer school has two poster sessions at the summer school. The goal of the poster session is to provide the participants with an opportunity to interact with world-renowned experts of silicon photonics to discuss their ideas and potential challenges.

    The Specialist Course on Silicon Photonics Design offers a focused, hands-on design course. It is targeted at researchers and engineers with an already fundamental understanding of photonic integrated circuits. The course focused on the process to translate a photonic circuit idea into a working chip, going from schematic design and circuit simulation to layout, routing and interactive design rule checking. As part of the course, the participants get the opportunity to actually tape-out a design that will be fabricated with an e-beam prototyping service and characterized. Based on these results, the design can be improved and submitted to a wafer-scale multi-project-wafer run of which the participants will receive the final chips.

    Hide Abstract
    MANPADS are responsible for over 60% of total aircraft casualties since 1960’s. DIRCM systems have been deployed in order to counter the threat. DIRCM system requires sources operating in bands I, II and IV. Recent development of GaSb laser diode technology at Brolis Semiconductors greatly improved performance parameters of laser diodes working in 1900-2450 nm range (band I). In this work we present a laser diode module operating in 2.1-2.3 µm spectral band and capable of providing directional beam with radiant intensity value of more than 30 kW/str. Module is extremely compact, lightweight (<50 g) and efficient (15%).
