Aixtron wins follow-on order from China’s Long De Xin for GaN blue HB-LEDs

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG of Aachen-Herzogenrath, Germany says that in second-quarter 2010 it received an order for two further CRIUS 31x2-inch wafer configuration metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems, for shipment in third-quarter 2010 to China-based firm Long De Xin. The reactors will be used for manufacturing GaN ultra-high-brightness (UHB) blue LEDs.

The local Aixtron support team will commission the new reactors at the new Long De Xin facility at their mainland China production plant.

“Since the demand for our blue LEDs has been continuosly growing, we now have to significantly increase our production capacity,” says Long De Xin’s Jay Lin. “As we have found, the Aixtron CRIUS lives up to its worldwide reputation for excellent process characteristics such as uniformity and efficiency, becoming crucial for high-end HB LED production,” he adds.
