The EPIC Centre in Torbay is located in a vibrant microelectronics cluster. It hosts some of the UK’s most innovative photonics companies. The centre offers businesses access to a classified cleanroom and >£2.5M worth of prototyping capability including die and wire bonding, photonics packaging, fibre alignment, microscopy and analysis. For just £1.2k per month, businesses can select either a 50m2 office or lab, access this equipment and can collaborate with photonics packaging specialists. There are frequently regional funding opportunities available to take space within the EPIC centre in addition to rent-free periods. The centre therefore offers an attractive proposition for businesses that are looking to grow, develop new products and join a ready-made supply chain within a rich photonics cluster.

Passcomm provides a range of high performance fibre optic components. We are the UK & Ireland partner for DIAMOND SA, the manufacturer of fibre optic connectors and interconnects. Diamond invented their Active Core Alignment process to produce low loss/high return loss connectors. These high performance connections are ideal for applications with small signal levels as often found in the quantum world this to preserve signal-to-noise ratios. They are available at a range of wavelengths from UV to IR using most fibre types. For requirements needing polarisation maintaining or polarising connectors, DIAMOND offer the PM and PM+ connectors with up to 30dB PER. Small form factor connectors with high mechanical stability suitable for demanding environments at high and low temperatures, including space qualified connectors are offered. DIAMOND have a library of multi-fibre ferrule designs and the capability to offer customised solutions.
