Aledia expands portfolio of Veeco equipment to develop and produce 3D micro-LEDs

Aledia S.A of Grenoble, France has expanded its portfolio of thin-film process equipment from Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA to support the development and production of 3D micro-LEDs. Aledia cited Veeco’s proven leadership in compound semiconductor applications, gallium nitride on silicon (GaN-on-Si) growth performance, and capability to grow a full range of high-quality epitaxial films as key factors influencing its decision.

“We have been impressed with the performance of Veeco’s Propel GaN metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) platform for large-wafer 3D LED production,” comments Aledia’s co-founder & chief technology officer Philippe Gilet. “Veeco’s solutions meet our rigorous material quality and system delivery requirements along with unmatched material flux stability and repeatability,” he adds. “We are excited to take the next step with them in producing next-generation 3D micro-LEDs.”

The firms say that the collaboration between them reflects the immense promise of micro-LEDs and other advanced LEDs for the future of displays. Micro-LEDs offer high efficiency, brightness and reliability benefits with shorter response time, enabling lighter, thinner and flexible displays with energy-saving advantages for applications such as wearables, smartphones, automotive, signage/large TVs, and augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR), it is said. According to a recent report by market analyst firm Yole Développement, nearly 1500 patents related to micro-LED displays have been filed collectively by 125 different companies, with the bulk of activity occurring after 2012.

“With the significant shift toward exploration of micro-LEDs for use in next-generation displays, leaders like Aledia are turning to Veeco,” says Gerry Blumenstock, senior VP & general manager of Veeco’s compound semiconductor business unit. “Veeco’s proven materials engineering expertise puts us in a unique position to offer innovative thin-film deposition technologies for customers tackling tough compound semiconductor research, development and production challenges,” he reckons.

Veeco is exhibiting and presenting at the CS International 2019 conference in Brussels, Belgium (26-27 March). Mark McKee, director of product marketing for Veeco’s MOCVD business unit, is giving the presentation ‘Accelerating Photonics Growth through Advances in High Performance As/P MOCVD and Wet Processing Technology’ at 9:50am (CET) on 27 March.
