Germany’s AIM Infrarot-Module buys third Veeco GEN20 MBE system

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that AIM Infrarot-Module GmbH of Heilbronn, Germany, a manufacturer of infrared detectors and thermal sights, has purchased a third GEN20 automated molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system, citing the outstanding performance and reliability of the system as the basis for AIM’s decision.

Veeco says that AIM’s prior GEN20 systems have delivered results that highlight the reliability of the MBE sources and performance of the substrate heater across demanding temperature and growth environments. In addition, Veeco’s scientific support has helped AIM to create infrared detectors for research, industrial, security and environmental protection applications.

The GEN20 is a flexible MBE system with a design configurable for mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) devices, other II-VI compound semiconductors, and traditional III-V materials. A benefit is its cluster tool wafer transfer system, which is suitable for AIM’s efforts to scale from lab to fab for short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) to long-wave infrared (LWIR) and especially multi-spectral technologies.

“The current demand for advancements in infrared detectors, along with challenges in the SWIR to LWIR, requires state-of-the-art MBE technologies and performance,” says Drew Hanser Ph.D., VP of technology for Veeco’s compound semiconductor business unit. “AIM’s decision to add to its existing portfolio of Veeco tools validates our team’s commitment to superior product performance and dedication to helping our customers achieve their technology goals across a broad range of industries,” he adds.

Veeco is showcasing its latest innovations in molecular beam epitaxy at the 20th European Workshop on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (EuroMBE 2019) at the Arabella Brauneck Hotel Conference Center in Lenggries, Germany (17-20 February).
