Jenoptik Picks ClassOne System For High-Power Diode Lasers

News

Solstice LT electroplating system will allow Jenoptik to process different GaAs wafers sizes to accommodate different customer requirements

ClassOne Technology has announced the sale of a Solstice LT electroplating system to Jenoptik for manufacturing semiconductor material for high-power diode lasers at its production facility in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany.

The dual-chambered Solstice LT is specially configured for high-performance gold processing. The announcement was made jointly by ClassOne CEO, Byron Exarcos, and Juergen Sebastian, plant manager of the Jenoptik facility in Berlin.

"The new Solstice LT will replace a manual plating wet bench," explained Sebastian. “This will significantly improve process stability, plating quality as well as reduce our metallszation step costs. That's important because at Jenoptik, we build all the semiconductors that go into our diode lasers in-house. The new Solstice LT electroplating system thus ensures very high quality, performance and service life of our end products. Moreover, the new system also promotes Jenoptik's policy of sustainability thanks to the new electrolyte technology.”

“The Solstice LT for Jenoptik is specially configured with our GoldPro processing chamber,” said Exarcos. “GoldPro can deliver unprecedented levels of repeatability - wafer-to-wafer, die-to-die, within-die, and within-feature. The bottom line is exceptional uniformity and reproducibility, along with reduced cost of ownership.”

With the new electroplating system, Jenoptik is now able to process different GaAs wafers sizes to accommodate different customer requirements. Another reason for selecting Solstice was the flexibility of its design, which readily allows the handling of multiple wafer sizes on the same tool.

“We're proud to be on the Jenoptik team because their semiconductor lasers are industry leaders,” said Exarcos. “Their quality is based on advanced manufacturing, with strict quality controls and state-of-the-art process technologies. It's an environment in which Solstice can play an integral role, and we're looking forward to the next generations of Jenoptik diode lasers.”
