Peter Linton has joined Vector Photonics as Factory Applications Engineer. Peter will provide a technical interface between the company’s global NEM (Network Equipment Manufacturer) customers and its Research & Development team in Glasgow. This will involve establishing each NEM customer’s next-generation, 800 Gb/s interconnects requirements, as they develop devices for hyperscale and cloud data centre applications. The role is essential to the successful, ongoing commercialisation of Vector Photonics’ unique, all-semiconductor PCSEL technology.
Euan Livingston, Sales and Marketing Director at Vector Photonics, said, “Peter will bring important direction to the ongoing development and commercialisation of Vector Photonic’s PCSELs. He will drive the ‘design-in’ of PCSELs in each NEM’s device development to inform PCSEL design, manufacture, characterisation, and systems qualification.”
Peter joins Vector Photonics from Edinburgh Instruments, manufacturer of spectroscopy instrumentation products. There, he was Product Engineer, responsible for validation testing, product integration, customer support, continuous design improvement, training and after sales support.
Peter has a Masters degree in Physics from the University of Strathclyde, specialising in Solid State Physics and Nanoscience. Outside work, Peter enjoys cooking for friends and family; brewing beer and wine of dubious quality; and walking and wild swimming with his partner Lily.
