Welcome to Spark Photonics
PHOTONICS DESIGN & EDUCATION
Spark will consult with you to understand your idea and requirements. We understand that photonics visions are often long-term investments that require significant up-front consideration and we will work with you to make sure you are set up for success.
Once your idea is ready, we will get to work in the design of your photonic integrated circuit. As an independent design house, we are able to access the leading process development kits (PDKs) from a multitude of foundries and we will work with you to select the right flow for your design.
PIC design is a process of learning and we will be there with you to determine next steps on your design. We also offer training services to build your in-house design expertise. We strive to improve with every design and will integrate your feedback as we continuously improve.
Spark Photonics was founded on the principles of integrity, innovation, and quality. Spark works at the frontier of scientific and engineering knowledge, in a realm where intellectual property, time to market, and cost effectiveness are paramount. By always adhering to our principles, we strive to delight our customers and serve as a cornerstone of the growing integrated photonics industry.
Spark Photonics translates photonics visions into reality.
Our vision is to build a world-class PIC ecosystem in the United States. The integrated photonics community has been building in prominence over the last few decades, and we believe the industry is now at an inflection point that will benefit from the customer-centric design services we provide.
