On 21st November 2019, VIGO System signed a grant agreement for the implementation of the research project called “The technology of the production of innovative epitaxial structures and VCSEL laser devices” within the framework of “Pathway for Mazovia” programme.VIGO System is the leader of the consortium. Other members include Warsaw University of Technology and Lodz University of Technology. The project’s total eligible costs are PLN 16,302,135.5. Funding amounts to PLN 12,398,365.18, which accounts for 76.05% of the total eligible costs. VIGO System’s eligible costs are PLN 13,014,525.55, and funding for the company is PLN 9,110,755.18.

The aim of the project is the development of new MOCVD solutions for the epitaxy of III-As and III-P vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) and quantum cascade laser (QCL). The epiwafers will be used for the design of the technology of the production of new and improved lasers and VCSELs arrays. One of innovative solutions is forming subwavelength gratings on laser’s emitting surface which will enhance lasers’ output spectral characteristics. VIGO System will also create the technology of the production of single mode VCESLs (to be applied in advanced telecom applications) with optimized structure characterized by high power output and reliability.
