Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that optical and photonic product maker Lumentum Holdings Inc of Milpitas, CA, USA has ordered its K475i arsenide/phosphide (As/P) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system for the production of components addressing the 3D sensing, high-speed fiber-optic communications and laser-based materials processing end-markets.

“The global communications, industrial and consumer electronics markets that our proprietary semiconductor lasers address are growing rapidly,” says Lumentum’s VP of manufacturing Susan Wang. “We chose Veeco’s K475i system with its high capacity/throughput, uniformity of quality, repeatability and exceptional performance to help expand our capacity and better address these growth opportunities,” he comments. “We have a longstanding relationship with Veeco and look forward to future collaboration together.”

The K475i system incorporates proprietary TurboDisc and Uniform FlowFlange MOCVD technologies, allowing users to improve compositional uniformity and dopant control while reducing cost-per-wafer by up to 20% compared with alternative systems through higher productivity, best-in-class yields and lower operating expenses, Veeco reckons. Applications include lighting, solar, laser diodes, vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs), pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility transistors (pHEMTs) and heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs).

“A leading player in the optical communications and commercial laser markets, Lumentum is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for next-generation laser and optical devices using Veeco MOCVD technology,” comments Peo Hansson, Ph.D., senior VP & general manager of MOCVD operations at Veeco. “As customers look for technologies that enable demanding new applications in increasingly competitive markets, many leading photonics, power electronics and LED device manufacturers continue to choose our proven MOCVD systems that deliver strong wafer uniformity and the lowest cost of ownership,” he adds.
