Finisar buys Aixtron MOCVD reactor for next-generation VCSEL production

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany has received a new order for an AIX 2800G4-R metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) reactor from Finisar Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, which manufactures optical communications subsystems and components enabling high-speed voice, video and data communications for networking, storage, wireless, and cable TV applications.

Following delivery in second-quarter 2011, the new system will be used for the production of vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) devices. The local Aixtron support team will commission the new reactor by working with Finisar engineers in their facility at Allen, TX.

“Finisar is seeing great demand for its VCSEL products,” comments Curt Barratt, general manager of Finisar Allen. “We have just completed an exhaustive search for the equipment set that will not only fulfill our current product demand, but also manufacture our next-generation products,” he adds. “The AIX 2800 G4-R system meets these requirements and will be a valuable addition to our manufacturing capabilities.”
