Lumicore orders Aixtron AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD systems
Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany says that high-power laser manufacturer Lumcore Optoelectronics Technology Co Ltd of Xi’an, China has ordered AIX 2800G4-TM metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems for the production of gallium arsenide (GaAs)- and indium phosphide (InP)-based epiwafers.
“We at Lumcore are now taking the next important strategic step in the company's development,” says Lumcore’s chairman Xu Tianyou. “According to our assessment, Aixtron’s product is the worldwide leading equipment in the production of high-end semiconductor laser epitaxial materials,”he adds. “With highly competitive high-power lasers, we can make a significant contribution to supporting China's development.”
The AIX 2800G4-TM systems feature a graphite process chamber and automated satellite loading at high temperatures, ensuring very high throughput and low particle count, says Aixtron. The high flexibility also enables Lumcore to produce epiwafers from 2-inches to 8-inches in diameter, depending on the requirements.
“With epiwafers grown on our systems, our customers are well prepared for the growing but increasingly competitive market for high-power laser applications in areas such as consumer electronics, automotive and communications,” says Aixtron’s president Dr Felix Grawert.
