AIXTRON AG, a leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry, has announced that it has received an order from Nanjing University's Institute of Optoelectronics for a new MOCVD tool.
The order is for a single AIX 2400G3 HT MOCVD system for development of ultra-high-brightness InGaN/GaN-based LEDs.
Dr Chen Peng, professor and director of the university's Institute of Optoelectronics, said following an investigation and consultation with local experts, the system was the first choice for its GaN LED research projects.
"We are building new capacity and exploring leading LED science and technology," he commented.
"The system satisfies our needs with the efficiency and stability."
Located in the Yangzhou High-tech Venture Services Center, the institute is one of the most important research and development centres for the high-tech industry in Yangzhou City.
AIXTRON AG's AIX 2800G4 HT Planetary Reactor system was recently ordered by Mitsubishi for the production of white high-brightness LEDs.
