News ItemEMCORE’s location in the SS&TP helps facilitate partnerships with Sandia

Dec 17, 2013 –

EMCORE Corporation, a leading provider of compound semiconductor-based components and subsystems for the fiber optic and solar power markets, established its photovoltaics business at the Sandia Science & Technology Park (SS&TP) in 1998 through a technology transfer of multi-junction solar cell technology from Sandia National Laboratories. In 2006 the company moved their headquarters from New Jersey to the SS&TP in Albuquerque, NM and now employs more than 300 people in the Park. EMCORE’s story, from its roots in New Jersey to its move to the Park, illustrates how one publicly traded company used the technological tools offered by Sandia to grow and prosper in a global economy despite difficult economic times.
