Lumcore orders Aixtron MOCVD for high-power lasers


AIX 2800G4-TM systems will be used for the production of GaAs- and InP-based epi-wafers

Lumcore, a Chinese specialist for high-power semiconductor lasers, has ordered Aixtron's AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD system. "We at Lumcore are now taking the next important strategic step in the company's development to provide excellent products to our customers worldwide. To do so, we need reliable partners with excellent technology at our side," says Xu Tianyou, Chairman of Lumcore.

Lumcore will be using the AIX 2800G4-TM for the production of GaAs and InP semiconductor crystal structures for optoelectronic components such as high-power laser diodes.

AIX 2800G4-TM systems feature a graphite process chamber and automated satellite loading at high temperatures, which ensures high throughput and low particle count. The high flexibility also enables Lumcore to produce epi-wafers from 2 to 8 inches, depending on the requirements.

Felix Grawert, president of Aixtron SE, comments: "With our Planetary Reactor Technology we offer a convincing solution even for very demanding high volume production. Its hallmarks are high productivity and performance gains at low cost of ownership. With epi-wafers grown on our systems, our customers are well prepared for the growing but increasingly competitive market for high-power laser applications in areas such as consumer electronics, automotive and communications".
