German industrial customer orders automated Riber MBE 412 production system
Riber S.A. of Bezons, France – which makes molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources – says that a German industrial customer has placed a multi-million Euro order for an automated MBE 412 system, for delivery in 2024, to be used to produce optoelectronic devices. More specifically, the machine is designed to passivate laser facets, in particular gallium arsenide (GaAs)-based quantum dot lasers, covering a wide range of applications: LiDAR, fiber-optic communications, cloud networking, etc.
The MBE 412 system is claimed to be the most suitable 4-inch wafer MBE research and pilot production tool on the market for III-V and advanced materials. Its modularity enables both development and production of new products by easily integrating the various control instruments required. Developed about ten years ago, over 25 MBE 412 systems are currently in operation worldwide.
