CNRS-CRHEA and FOTON Institute order two Riber Compact 21 research MBE systems
Riber S.A. of Bezons, France — which designs and makes molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells — has received orders for two Compact 21 research MBE systems (to be delivered in 2023).
France’s CNRS-CRHEA (Centre de Recherche sur L’Hétéro-Epitaxie et ses Applications – Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) — which specializes in epitaxial growth of wide-bandgap semiconductor materials — has ordered a Compact 21 system to strengthen its research capacity for emerging semiconductor materials.
Riber has also sold another Compact 21 system to France’s FOTON Institute (Fonctions Optiques pour les Technologies de l’informatiON - CNRS UMR) — a center of academic excellence in photonics for information technology — which will help to expand its research capabilities.
The acquisition of the two Riber’s systems was carried out through the NANOFUTUR Project. Financed by the French government via the National Research Agency, the project aims to structure the French nanotechnology community for the next ten years by providing it with the state-of-the-art equipment that will allow it to evolve at the highest level globally.
