Taiyuan University of Technology selects Aixtron CCS system for blue LEDs 

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany has received an order from new customer Taiyuan University of Technology of China for a Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system in 3x2”-wafer configuration, to be used for research into gallium nitride (GaN)-based materials for blue high-brightness (HB) LEDs.

The new reactor will be delivered in second-quarter 2011, and commissioned in a new facility at the university by one of Aixtron's local support teams in China.

“This will be our first Aixtron epitaxial growth system, although we are already very familiar with this technology and know well of the reputation of this company’s equipment and service,” says Dr Jian Liang, professor of Taiyuan University of Technology’s Material College State Laboratory. “The Close Coupled Showerhead system is an ideal choice for us because it satisfies so many criteria,” he adds. “We are particularly interested in its versatility as well as stand-out factors such as low material consumption. These will ensure that this system is so much superior for our University research project.”

Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2002, Taiyuan University of Technology comes under the authority of the provincial government of Shanxi, China. Historically, although it was originally part of Shanxi University, it did not become an independent university until much later. Today it is listed officially as one of the ‘Top 100 Universities in China’, according to the Chinese government.
