IQE is employing Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL) capability in combination with its IP-protected Photonic Quasi-Crystal (PQC) technology to create optics for advanced sensing applications.

A PQC is a pattern that has long-range order and short-range disorder. PQC-patterning of the appropriate medium provides simple, powerful beam steering capability. This technology provides the possibility of creating on-wafer optics, thereby enabling IQE to provide customers with an integrated sensing solution.
