VCSEL expertise
While ams says that its business is largely complementary with that of Osram, there are some areas where the two firms overlap and compete. For example, both have made recent investments in VCSEL production: ams acquiring Princeton Optronics, and Osram buying Vixar. Both are hoping that the emerging market for automotive lidar sensors becomes highly lucrative as autonomous systems become more widely deployed. This SEM image shows several tiny VCSEL emitters.
