Aixtron – SINANO MOCVD Training Center established

Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech & Nano-bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SINANO) says that on 22 June it signed an agreement in Suzhou with deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany to co-establish the Aixtron – SINANO MOCVD Training Center. The signing ceremony was attended by SINANO’s director professor Yang Hui and Aixtron's chief financial officer Wolfgang Breme.

Aixtron will provide one CRIUS II MOCVD system and one AIXG5HT MOCVD system to SINANO’s facility to train its customers and potential customers’ engineers on the usage of metal-organic chemical vapor deposition systems. SINANO’s process and maintenance engineers will also be trained by Aixtron in system operation.

SINANO comments that MOCVD is the most critical epitaxial growth equipment in the upstream chain of the semiconductor lighting industry and requires high-level operation staff. By building the Aixtron – SINANO MOCVD Training Center, SINANO and Aixtron aim to take advantage of each party's strengths, in order to train high-end industry professionals and to provide the talent to support both the Yangtze River Delta region and national optoelectronics and photovoltaic industry development.

Moreover, based on this cooperation, the two sides are preparing to establish an MOCVD R&D center, with a view to fundamentally improving China’s MOCVD epitaxy technology and MOCVD equipment manufacturing capacity.
