Embodiments disclosed herein generally relate to a method for manufacturing a photonic device that facilitates precise alignment of a laser with a waveguide. The method generally includes disposing the laser on a support member on a substrate such that the laser contacts the support member. The support member may extend in a direction perpendicular to a base plane of the substrate, and solder may be disposed on the base plane such that a height of the solder in the direction perpendicular to the base plane is less than a height of the support member so that a gap is created between the solder and the laser. Once the laser has been properly aligned with the waveguide, the solder may be heated (e.g., reflowed) so that the solder contacts the laser.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
