VIGO Photonics

VIGO Photonics

VIGO Photonics is a European manufacturer of epitaxial wafers and instruments for photonics and microelectronics, specialising in MWIR and LWIR detectors and modules, produced with the use of internally-developed technology.

VIGO has a complete front-end and back-end production line for semiconductor high-capacity instruments – from epitaxy of II-IV and III-V groups, through detector chips, lasers and their assembly and integration with electronics. The company is constantly expanding its market reach and now has subsidiaries in Europe and the US. Currently, VIGO employs approximately 200 employees with specialised knowledge that will enable the implementation of the tasks within PIONEAR.

Due to the fact that the main goal of the project is to create a proof-of-concept of a novel miniature microphone with better-than-human-ear sound quality, VIGO fits perfectly into the project’s ambition. The vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) play a key role in the envisioned device and VIGO is one of the very few companies in Europe that is manufacturing such lasers.
