Veeco ships GEN20-Q MBE system to Taiwan’s Hermes-Epitek

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has shipped a GEN20-Q molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system to Hermes-Epitek, a semiconductor and optoelectronics client based in the Hsinchu Science Park in Taiwan.

As a purpose-built, multi-chamber system designed for the growth of quantum devices, the GEN20-Q MBE system will be used for the epitaxial growth of superconductor and semiconductor materials exhibiting excellent crystalline and superconducting properties. This process capability should further advance key device characteristics and enable the scaling from research & development to high-volume production.

“This GEN20-Q system shipment represents Veeco’s continued contribution to revolutionizing quantum computing technologies,” says Matthew Marek, senior director of marketing for Veeco’s MBE Group. “Leading technology companies recognize the knowledge and process capabilities we have here to support quantum technologies with not only MBE platforms but also atomic layer deposition. These are essential technologies that will help drive industry progress,” he notes. “We look forward to continued innovations with partners like Hermes-Epitek.”

Investment in quantum technologies has surpassed $30bn, with about 75% of that going to quantum computing hardware, according to the ‘Quantum Technologies 2023’ report published by Yole Group.

Veeco’s GEN20-Q MBE system utilizes a tailored design to support research and production of multiple quantum computing techniques including superconductive materials, spintronics, and high-speed optical modulation. The system incorporates production design technology that allows direct scalability to Veeco’s multi-wafer high-volume manufacturing MBE systems.
