Wafer Fabrication

Oclaro is a vertically integrated company, delivering components and solutions from a very strong and well established technology base. Our state of the art wafer fabrication facilities are key to our product differentiation. We have indium phosphide (InP) wafer fabs in the UK and Japan. Our UK wafer fab is focused on tunable integrated device and PICs (Photonic Integrated Circuits). Our Japan wafer fab focuses on manufacturing state of the art directly modulated lasers (DMLs), electro-absorption modulated lasers (EMLs) and receiver diodes. Our discrete high performance modulator chips for 40G and 100G systems are manufactured on our Lithium Niobate wafer line in San Donato, Italy. Our technology diversity underpins our differentiation and enables us to deliver product covering the full market requirement.
