LayTec sells 100th EpiCurveTT sensor; recruits new sales engineer

LayTec GmbH of Berlin, Germany says that it has delivered its 100th EpiCurve wafer curvature sensor. Originally developed in 2005 as an R&D tool, it is now LayTec’s bestselling product, especially for LED manufacturing. As many as 75% of these sensors have been delivered to industry, mainly in Europe, Taiwan and Japan.

LayTec also says that it has recruited Dr Yuto Tomita as a new member of its sales team, in charge of sales in Japan and Korea.

Tomita obtained a master degree in chemical engineering at Japan’s Yamagata University in the group of professor Junji Kido, before studying at the Technical University of Dresden then obtained a PhD degree at IPMS Fraunhofer Institute in Dresden, Germany. His work concerned alternative transparent electrodes for the replacements of ITO (indium tin oxide) in organic LEDs (OLEDs), particularly Al-doped ZnO and highly conductive polymers.
