EMCORE offers a broad portfolio of compound semiconductor-based products for the telecom, CATV, satellite communications, video transport, defense & homeland security and solar power markets. Our two primary operating segments are Fiber Optics and Solar Photovoltaics. EMCORE Fiber Optics provides optical components, subsystems and systems that enable the transmission of video, voice, and data over high-capacity fiber optic links. EMCORE Solar Photovoltaics provides products based on its high-efficiency Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) solar cells for both space and terrestrial solar power applications.
Emcore develops and manufactures the most efficient solar cells in the world. These multiple-junction solar cells provide power for most of the satellites and extra-planetary spacecraft in use in space today, and are also poised to provide a cost-effective source of clean, renewable energy here on Earth. Emcore is seeking an exceptional engineer interested in applying their talent and motivation to solving problems in the ever-important renewable energy industry. This engineer will work in an R&D environment to develop advanced process capabilities to manufacture and improve cutting-edge solar cell products.
