Korean Institute purchases Veeco MBE reactor

The system will be used for gallium arsenide (GaAs) laser diode development
Korean Photonics Technology Institute (KOPTI) has purchased a Veeco GEN20 MBE system.

The reactor will be shipped to KOPTI’s Laser-IT Research Centre and Photonics System Lab in Gwangju, South Korea for high-powered GaAs-based laser diode research.

Swook Hann, head of KOPTI’s Laser-IT Research Centre and Photonics Systems Lab, says, “We have selected the MBE GEN20 system for our work in development of high-powered GaAs laser diodes because of its process flexibility and Veeco’s impressive track record in supplying tools to the III-V laser diode market. These are critical elements for KOPTI since we are developing technologies that can be taken from lab to fab.”

Jim Northup, Vice President, General Manager of Veeco’s MBE Operations, adds, “KOPTI is known worldwide for developing pioneering breakthroughs which bridge the gap between pure research and industrial production. We are pleased to partner with such an important technology centre in Korea supporting the further commercialisation of high power laser diodes with our GEN20 MBE system.”
