“The collaboration is based on congruent business models and a common understanding of sustainable service. We are a MEMS foundry with 25 years plus experience, own no products, but a fundamental understanding of how to process them in highest possible quality. The same approach and mind set we found at Photonics Foundry” says Thomas Stärz, co-founder of the microfab GmbH.

Other than contract-based packaging, also active alignment, prototype builds, (optic) design for automation and technology transfer is being offered at the headquarters in Bremen.
