Driving the next generation of silicon photonics

Rockley’s core technology platform was developed with a total focus on high volume manufacture of highly integrated optical/electronic devices. Rockley’s large waveguide photonics platform offers multiple benefits over conventional solutions.

These benefits include higher density waveguide circuit design, better manufacturing tolerance,superior optical power handling, and a more efficient interface from the photonics IC to the physical domain.

Rockley Photonics’ technology simplifies the manufacturing, assembly, and test process while maximizing the power efficiency of the optical system.

Lasers

Rockley lasers offer fine wavelength control and good power efficiency. The waveguide platform allows efficient wafer-scale integration of laser-devices through a flip-chip process.

Fiber Optic Coupling

The photonic IC contains on-chip embedded interfaces to the optical fibers. These interfaces allow the fiber to be attached directly to the photonic IC without external light coupling elements.
