HexaTech Launches Deep-UV 2-Inch AlN Substrates
Capability targets production of high-performance UV-C wavelength LEDs
HexaTech has announced today the launch of its deep-UV transparent 2-inch diameter, single crystal AlN substrate product line.
This capability is targeted to directly support commercial production of high-performance ultraviolet C (UV-C) wavelength lLEDs, and follows the announcement of HexaTech's 2-inch diameter, defect-free AlN substrate capability in May of last year.
HexaTech developed this application-specific product to satisfy the technology needs of its strategic business partners and the actively growing UV-C LED market. “This deep-UV transparency capability, especially when coupled with HexaTech's market-leading crystal quality, continues to demonstrate both the wide-ranging potential of the AlN platform, and the outstanding technical abilities of our development team”, remarked HexaTech CEO, John Goehrke.
Gregory Mills, HexaTech VP of business development said: “The 2-inch deep-UV substrate launch is a game-changer for UV-C LED applications. Our customers now have a no-compromise solution to produce deep-UV LEDs at 265 nm, which have been shown to exceed the operational performance of any sapphire-based part at this wavelength.”
