Picosun Delivers ALD Tech To Ams Osram
Ams Osram to use cutting-edge ALD technology for volume manufacturing of optical semiconductor devices
Ams Osram has invested in a fully automated Picosun Morpher production cluster, which can deposit multiple materials on a batch of wafers even during the same process run. The system enables volume production as well as the testing of new processes for R&D of future products.
Picosun Group and Ams Osram have collaborated in a public funded project FLINGO (m-era.net project) to develop new ALD materials and processes to improve the characteristics of LEDs, such as efficiency and durability. The collaboration between the parties will continue after the ALD system delivery with activities to further expand the use of ALD in optoelectronic semiconductor processing.
“We have been working with Picosun since 2010 and now with this investment we can bring our collaboration to the next level. We are very excited to have the Picosun Morpher F cluster platform installed in our cleanroom”, said Sebastian Taeger, at Ams Osram.
“The optical semiconductor market is one focus area of Picosun today. It is a fast-growing market where we have a strong presence with our tailored solutions for compound semiconductor-based devices. We have had excellent collaboration with the Ams Osram technical team during project FLINGO and during the system specification stage. The expertise from both companies has resulted in optimised ALD solutions to boost the performance of the customer's products.”, continues Dr. Christoph Hossbach, general manager of Picosun Europe GmbH.
