HexaTech further expands AlN substrate product line

HexaTech Inc of Morrisville, NC, USA, a subsidiary of Stanley Electric Co Ltd of Tokyo, Japan, has announced the production release of its expanded 2-inch-diameter, DUV (deep ultraviolet)-transparent, single-crystal aluminium nitride (AlN) substrate product line.

The new product bin offers what are reckoned to be the highest-transparency AlN substrates on the market, with deep-UV absorption coefficients now commercially available below 30cm-1 at 265nm.

“This product line expansion is a direct result of technical achievements reached by the HexaTech team over the past 12 months,” notes CEO John Goehrke.

The commercial launch follows HexaTech’s demonstration of 2-inch bulk AlN with absorption coefficient values below 12cm-1 at 265nm, presented earlier in the year. These extremely low coefficients virtually eliminate through-substrate transparency concerns for UV-C light-emitting diodes (LEDs), providing optimum ultraviolet C (UV-C) optoelectronic device performance, the firm says.

“With this launch, HexaTech demonstrates once again its focus on driving the value proposition of AlN for its strategic partners in the rapidly growing UV-C LED market, by providing dramatically increased LED device performance, while simultaneously reducing LED manufacturing costs,” says Gregory Mills, VP of business development.

All of HexaTech’s 2-inch-diameter products, including the full range of DUV-transparent substrate products, are available now with standard lead times.
