Laser World of Photonics – post-show update

Laser World of Photonics – post-show update


LEW Techniques exhibited at Munich’s Laser World of Photonics in June, to showcase its capabilities in precision sub-mounts and carriers for laser diodes, laser bars, laser stacks and photodiodes.

Technical Director, Andrew Walker, was on the stand and commented: “This biannual exhibition is the main event in Europe to showcase our range of products for the mounting of optoelectronic devices. We welcomed a steady stream of visitors to our stand over the four days of the show, both new contacts who are often surprised at the wide range of parts that we manufacture, and existing customers who are keen to discuss ongoing, potential and new projects. There was significant interest in our precision W/Cu laser bar mounts as well as our C-Mount and AlN single-emitter carriers. Of particular interest were some large-scale, fully-working examples of AuSn-coated W/Cu carriers, manufactured specifically to more easily demonstrate the quality and precision of the miniature components we make.”

He added “LEW Techniques has specialised for over 50 years in the manufacture of miniature components for the mounting and interconnect of semiconductor devices. Over that time, we have seen technologies emerge and decline, but optoelectronics continues to show strong and solid growth. It was a very encouraging and productive show for us”

The company would like to thank everyone who visited the stand at the exhibition. If you would like to be informed of our future news and events, sign up to our mailing list here.
