Sensing Innovation

Our Technology

We are extending the capability of gallium arsenide-based lasers and photodetectors beyond 13xx nm, combining the advantages of longer wavelengths with the cost, maturity, and volume scalability of GaAs.

Our patented eGaAs™ technology platform enables low-cost, scalable manufacturing of 13xx nm to 15xx nm photodetector and VCSEL arrays on 6” (150 mm) GaAs substrates for high-volume consumer and commercial sensing applications.

Our eGaAs™ and iVCSEL™ technologies enable next-generation consumer and commercial 3D, proximity, and spectral sensing applications.

About Us

Array Photonics designs and manufactures laser and photodetectors for next generation infrared sensing applications. By extending the wavelength range of GaAs-based devices, Array Photonics offers high-volume production of VCSEL and photodetector arrays operating beyond 1300 nm, as well as broadband photodetectors covering both the visible and infrared wavelength ranges. With over 90 issued and pending patents and a fully integrated, 40,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Tempe, Arizona, Array Photonics is ready to meet its customers’ demanding application and production requirements.

Management Team

Hamid Torabi Hamid Torabi CEO

Hamid has served as CEO of Array Photonics since 2014. He joined Array Photonics following a 30-year career at International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) where he last served as Director of IBM Research for the Middle East and Africa. During his time at IBM, Hamid held various technical and executive management positions in the areas of semiconductor research, product design, manufacturing, and business development.

Sabeur Siala Sabeur Siala CTO

Sabeur leads the development of Array Photonics’ laser and photodetector products. Prior to joining Array Photonics, Sabeur held executive roles at a number of Silicon Valley photonics companies including VP of Engineering at Santur Corp. (acquired by Neophotonics); VP of Engineering & Manufacturing at Redfern Integrated Optics (acquired by Optosense/QinetiQ); and co-founded LuxN Inc. (acquired by Sorrento Networks). He started his career at SDL, Inc. (acquired by JDSU/now Lumentum). Sabeur holds a BSEE from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in photonics from the University of Southern California.

Chantal Arena Chantal Arena COO

Chantal has been involved in various management and executive roles in the Silicon, III-nitride and III-V semiconductor industries. For more than 30 years she has worked with and led key teams in developing and introducing devices, systems and equipment. She started her carrier at LETI-CEA and then joined a number of semiconductor OEM companies including MRC, TEL and ASM Epitaxy. She co-founded PhotoNitride and GaNotec (acquired by SOITEC) in order to develop leading edge Gallium Nitride technologies. From 2006 to 2016 she played a key role in SOITEC ‘s diversification and implementation strategy that included acquisitions in the field of LED devices and lighting as well as III-V solar cells and CPV modules. Chantal holds an electrical and physics engineering degree from ENSIEG in Grenoble and a M.S./ Ph-D in semiconductor devices and materials science from the Polytechnical National Institute of Grenoble (INPG).
