Neo-Neon orders ten more Aixtron reactors for blue/green LED production

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that in Q4/2009 it received an order for ten more CRIUS 31x2”-wafer configuration deposition systems from China-based Neo-Neon International Ltd, for delivery in the third and fourth quarters of 2010. The local Aixtron support team will commission the reactors at Neo-Neon’s new five-story facility in Guang Dong, mainland China, where they will be used for gallium nitride ultra-high-brightness (UHB) blue/green LED production.

“We have been enjoying the benefits of our existing Aixtron MOCVD systems for over a year now,” says Neo-Neon’s chairman Ben Fan. “To comply with our future expansion plans it is time to further increase our capacity,” adding that the firm returned to Aixtron because of the quality of its engineering and the responsive local support that comes as standard with CRIUS systems.

Spezialising in flexible LED-based ‘Neon-like’ light replacement products, Neo-Neon is the world's largest decorative lighting manufacturer. It recently entered the LED streetlight market by launching the LED High Power Street Light series. Solar-powered versions are also available for areas where there is ample sunshine to harness, store, and use. Neo-Neon has developed an optical enhancement technique to boost the luminosity of the LED Streetlight series by a gain factor of 50% on average, due to a patent-pending ‘Lux Boosting Optical Technology’.

Neo-Neon Group subsidiary Xianghe mainly manufactures the LED light source, LED luminaries and other related LED-based products. Its parent company Neo-Neon International Ltd is therefore able to manufacture both LED chip and LED application products for the worldwide market.
