Sandia orders second Nippon Sanso SR4000HT
Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corp (TNSC) of Tokyo, Japan says that the USA’s Sandia National Laboratories has ordered a second SR-4000HT metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system, to be used for its expansion of aluminium gallium nitride (AlGaN) and aluminium nitride (AlN) power electronics and ultraviolet (UV) optoelectronics device development.
“The SR-4000HT’s advanced and stable performance for high-temperature wide-bandgap materials processing met the need for Sandia’s MOCVD capabilities,” says TNSC’s executive corporate officer Kunihiro Kobayashi. “Taiyo Nippon Sanso is looking forward to supporting Sandia’s advanced technology development efforts for years to come,” he adds.
TNSC expects the ultra-wide-bandgap power and optoelectronics sectors go grow substantially, and for the SR-4000HT MOCVD system to be the platform of choice for many AlGaN and AlN applications.
