Aixtron hosts MOCVD short course

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany, along with the China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA), has once again hosted a seminar on metal organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) at the China International Forum on Solid State Lighting trade event in Guangzhou, China (5 – 7 November). More than 200 decision makers from industry and research attended the seminar.

“Prices for LED bulbs as replacements for 40W incandescent bulbs in some countries are below the USD 10.00 mark”, said Dr Bernd Schulte, COO and member of Aixtron’s Executive Board, in his presentation. “This is good news, because it will significantly expand the market for LED lighting. The question now is how to reduce manufacturing costs even further, which turns the focus onto MOCVD as a decisive manufacturing step. I am convinced that we can only achieve quality and cost efficiency by constantly improving the reactor design and through maximum process control. If we continue to strictly focus on these areas and, at the same time, help our customers to migrate to silicon wafers of up to 8 inches in diameter, we will be able to achieve a considerable further reduction of production costs."

“China has the potential to become the world’s biggest market of end consumers for LEDs over the
next few years," said Tim Wang, general manager of Aixtron China Ltd. “Over the past few
months we have realigned and restructured our China organizations to be more customer focused.
Our Demo & Training Center is currently experiencing strong demand for supported process demo,
training and development, which shows us that our customers recognize the benefit we have
created for them locally.”
