Veeco wins multi-unit order from solar cell maker Spectrolab

Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has received a multi-unit order for its TurboDisc K-475 As/P (arsenic phosphide) MOCVD deposition systems from Boeing Spectrolab Inc, a manufacturer of solar cells and panels.

The TurboDisc As/P is a high volume production system for the manufacturing of devices such as solar cells, red, orange and yellow HB-LEDs, laser diodes, pHEMTs and HBTs. It offers a level of process control and repeatability unmatched by competing MOCVD systems, says Veeco.
