2013 September. Etaphase successfully completes proof of concept development cycle for photonic integrated circuit components based on HUDS technology. In conjunction with teams at the Universities of Washington and British Columbia, and San Francisco State University, Etaphase engineers designed, built, and tested the first set of photonic components using the company’s proprietary architecture and design tools. This outcome extends earlier work by the company’s founding scientific team at Princeton, where HUDS™ was implemented for microwave devices to deliver isotropic band-gaps.
2012 June. Etaphase and Princeton enter into exclusive license agreement for intellectual property pertaining to Quasicrystals and HUDS technology.
2012 June. Etaphase, Incorporated formed as a spin-out company of Princeton University and Auxin Partners, LLC. Etaphase will develop products and services based on breakthrough materials science work developed by a team led by Princeton professor Paul Steinhardt, the Einstein Chair of Science.
