Lumibird Group is a major European laser company with 40 years of experience, specialized in the design, manufacturing and the sales of state-of-the-art laser sources and innovative solutions in ophthalmology. The group is listed on the Euronext stock exchange (LBIRD) and has generated with its 580 employees more than €110 million revenue in 2019.
Keopsys Industries is a 100% subsidiary of Lumibird Group, which belongs to the laser Business Unit. It develops, produces and commercializes active and passive photonic components, fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. Based in Lannion in France, Keopsys started developing packaging activities since 1999 and is now commercializing various optoelectronic devices (laser diodes, DFB, photoreceivers, etc. ) in ruggedized packages for very demanding markets such as those for autonomous vehicles, 3D scanning and wind- sensing. The team at Keopsys responsible for the packaging now counts 8 employees.
The role of Keopsys per WP in OPHELLIA is:
As a consortium member, Keopsys is responsible for attending and participating in the project meetings and providing all the information necessary to enable the UT to conduct sound project management.
Keopsys will contribute to the analysis of end-user needs in order to translate it into the requirements of the PIC module and PIC building blocks.
Keopsys is (jointly) responsible for:
The development of a sputtering deposition;
The design of complex PIC modules including amplifiers, modulators and lasers.
Keopsys is in charge of leading WP4.
Keopsys is (jointly) responsible for the exploitation and dissemination of project results.
All the development work in OPHELLIA will be carried out in the new ISO7 clean room (120 m2), that has been implemented in 2019 within the Keopsys’ facilities. A non-exhaustive list of the equipment that will be used by Keopsys in the project is detailed below:
