Bridgelux orders Veeco MOCVD reactors for LED production ramp

Epitaxial deposition, process, and metrology equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview NY, USA says that Bridgelux Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, which designs and makes LED-based light sources, has placed a multi-unit order for TurboDisc K465 gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems to support its production ramp for interior and exterior general illumination applications.

“Bridgelux is focused on enabling mass adoption of LED-based solid-state lighting by reducing the cost of light for the general lighting market,” says the LED maker’s CEO Mark Swoboda. “Bridgelux is committed to the advancement of our core LED materials and process technologies. We expect Veeco to be a strategic partner for our manufacturing expansion,” he adds.

“Bridgelux is an important industry player, and we are very excited to secure this important new customer,” says Bill Miller, senior VP, general manager of Veeco's MOCVD operations.

Veeco’s TurboDisc K465 GaN MOCVD system is said to be the only production-proven, fully automated MOCVD platform available on the market. The K-Series MOCVD platform includes the K465 for GaN LED applications and the K475 for arsenic phosphide (As/P) LED and solar applications.
