NTT Photonics Laboratories orders Aixtron reactor to develop InP optical and microelectronic devices

Japan’s NTT Photonics Laboratories ordered a Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) Flip Top MOCVD system from Aixtron of Aachen, Germany in Q2/2007. Delivered in 3x3" wafer configuration, the system will be used to develop indium phosphide (InP) based optical and microelectronic devices.

Hiroaki Takeuchi, executive manager of the Advanced Opto-electronics Laboratory at NTT Photonics Laboratories, said: "We are very familiar with the Aixtron MOCVD systems and the quality of service. We have been very pleased with our previous CCS system which was for GaN electronic device development.”

NTT Photonics Laboratories manufactures a range of products that include:

  • Mode-hop-free distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) laser array, integrated with different wavelength DBR lasers, a multimode interference (MMI) optical coupler, and a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) on a single chip.
  • 40-Gbit/s InP Mach-Zehnder modulator.
  • InP heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs).
  • MMICs for wireless access systems that feature a data rate of 10 Gbit/s and more.
