Yangzhou Longyao ramps production of GaN HB-LED epiwafers with order for Aixtron CRIUS MOCVD systems

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that at the end of 2009 it received a multiple order for additional MOCVD tools from LED manufacturer Yangzhou Longyao (a subsidiary of Rainbow Optoelectronics Material Shanghai Co Ltd) of Yangzhou, PR China.

The CRIUS epitaxial growth reactors will be delivered in 31x2-inch wafer configuration and commissioned in the course of the third and fourth quarters of 2010.

Aixtron says it has been chosen as the exclusive supplier for Rainbow's large-scale plan to meet the challenges of improved LED performance via its ongoing project entitled 'Deo Light'. In collaboration with Prof. Shuji Nakamura's laboratory, Deo Light focuses on the technical development of blue, green, white LEDs and blue lasers.

“The order was placed with Aixtron as they will be continuing to help with our forthcoming capacity increase. In only a couple of years we have seen great acceptance for our range of HB GaN LED epiwafer

products, so now we quickly have to ramp up more production in order to meet demand. We will surely have one of the largest and most capable GaN high brightness LED capacity facilities in China when these new tools are up and running,” said Dr Alan Li, general manager of Yangzhou Longyao.
