III-V optoelectronic foundry Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global Ltd (CST Global) of Hamilton International Technology Park, Blantyre, near Glasgow, Scotland, UK has become a member of the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC), the association responsible for maintaining the largest active network of photonics-related companies in Europe.

EPIC now has 370 member companies, spanning industry sectors including LED lighting; photovoltaic solar energy; photonics integrated circuits (PICs); optical components; lasers and sensor production; imaging, displays and projection; optical fiber communications; and other industries enabled by photonics-related technologies. EPIC is owned and operated by its members, who range from start-ups and SMEs to large corporates, as well as including research organizations, universities and other stakeholders connected to the photonics industry.

EPIC manages several focused LinkedIn Groups and exhibits at events across Europe. It organizes 20-30 events per year, including technology workshops and networking events, providing members with opportunities to meet and network with key suppliers and industry leaders and facilitating press releations and communications opportunities amongst its members.

“It provides a strong network environment for photonics-enabled companies and industries in Europe, with recognition and influence worldwide,” comments Euan Livingston, VP sales & marketing at CST Global. “It is a proactive organization, often acting as a catalyst and facilitator for both technological and commercial advancement. It can help accelerate growth and identity new and emerging photonics markets for research and development,” he adds.

“CST Global brings an exceptional contribution to the consortium through its III-V compound semiconductor technologies for the fabrication of photonics products,” comments EPIC’s director general Carlos Lee. “The company provides both a custom foundry service, as well as a range of high-volume, standard laser products for the optical communications markets.”
