Developing leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing technology and devices for more than a decade, BluGlass Limited (ASX:BLG) is a global provider to the GaN photonics industries, delivering cutting-edge, custom laser and LED development across the industrial, defence, display, and scientific markets.

 

Listed on the ASX, we are an Australian public company established to power the smarter, cleaner, more efficient photonics of tomorrow with our proprietary low temperature, low hydrogen, remote plasma chemical vapour deposition (RPCVD) manufacturing technology.

Backed by an extensive network of supply-chain partners, BluGlass offers a suite of laser diode products, from small batch custom lasers through to high-volume and off the shelf products.

Bringing new innovations to market

We have a reputation for helping our customers and partners solve complex problems by combining the best of traditional nitride growth techniques with our own unique low temperature, low resistivity nitride growth process – to enable brighter, higher efficiency and devices.

Our revolutionary growth technology, RPCVD, offers many unique benefits to our customers – promising performance and power advantages and a cleaner, lower temperature method of manufacture.

The future of clean technology

The innovations we, and our customers, are developing are set to have meaningful impact on the global economy and environment as the world transitions to smarter, cleaner and lighter footprint technologies.
BluGlass strives to positively impact through pioneering innovation, global commercialisation, and by delivering increasingly energy efficient technologies – reduced carbon emissions. Together this will create significant benefit for our customers, our shareholders, our industry; and the environment we live in.

Helping photonics leaders drive the technologies of tomorrow

Science and innovation are at the heart of everything we do – solving the complex or impossible is part of our job description. Our IP portfolio, now comprising 78 internationally-granted patents in key-semiconductor manufacturing jurisdictions, continues to grow as our talented team of scientists and engineers enable new technologies and break new ground.

We are committed to the continued development and commercialisation of our low temperature technology and we invite you to join us at this exciting time in our Company history, as we deliver on our technology and product development roadmap and launch our first commercial laser diodes.
