Epiwafer and substrate maker IQE plc of Cardiff, Wales, UK says that its North Carolina site has been qualified by US-based Raytheon, a business of aerospace & defense company RTX, for the manufacture of epitaxial wafers for use in advanced infrared sensing and imaging.

IQE will continue to be a trusted technology partner, providing Raytheon with a secure supply of high-performance infrared photodetector epiwafers made in the USA to bolster national security and domestic supply chains.
