Tongfang selects Aixtron MOCVD systems to boost capacity for blue HB-LEDs

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that, in first-quarter 2010, it received a new order from China’s Tsinghua Tongfang for two AIX 2800G4 HT 42x2”-wafer configuration metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems which, after delivery in third-quarter 2010, will be used for production of gallium nitride (GaN)-based ultra-high-brightness (UHB) blue LED. The local Aixtron support team will be responsible for the installation and commissioning of the new reactors at Tongfang’s production plant.

“Our company is seeking to carry out a major production capacity increase for our high-brightness blue gallium nitride LED devices,” says professor Liu Gang, general manager of Tongfang Opto. “The Aixtron AIX 2800G4 HT system is a perfect match for these requirements,” he comments. “Through our close relationship with Aixtron we have built up great confidence not only in the quality and performance of their equipment but also in their support and service.”
