NY CREATES Celebrates Fifth Anniversary of AIM Photonics


The New York Center for Research, Economic Advancement, Technology, Engineering and Science (NY CREATES) today announced AIM Photonics will be featured on the nationally broadcast educational program Information Matrix as part of its fifth anniversary celebration.  Formally established as the American Institute of Manufacturing Photonics in 2015, AIM Photonics has been at the forefront of New York’s success in the Integrated Photonics arena.

More than a decade ago, Department of Defense and DARPA funds were first committed to photonics programs at the Albany Nanotech site.  Industry collaboration and creative partnerships have driven this technology focus forward, as the next realm of integrated photonics design and devices are being developed at AIM Photonics facilities at NY CREATES in Albany and Rochester, NY, including the AIM Test, Assembly, and Packaging (TAP) facility.

The national broadcast on Information Matrix will be hosted by award-winning actor Laurence Fishburne on more than 200 public television stations beginning the week of May 25.  This segment was filmed on location at the TAP facility in Rochester, NY, the only open 300mm state-of-the-art photonic packaging research center in the world.  The video features some of the incredible innovations and applications of integrated photonics.
