Veeco Receives Multi-Tool Order From Optoelectronics Firm
Customer orders mutiple Lumina MOCVD systems for production of photonics applications
Veeco Instruments has announced that a manufacturer of optoelectronic components has ordered multiple Lumina MOCVD Systems for production of leading-edge photonics applications. The customer currently operates multiple Veeco MOCVD platforms, as well as other Veeco technologies.
“Following a successful evaluation, the superior performance of the Lumina platform has now been fully validated with several follow-on-orders for use in high-volume manufacturing,” commented Adrian Devasahayam, Veeco's SVP, product management.
“The Lumina system is built on over 20 years of high volume MOCVD expertise and carries on the proven performance of our core TurboDisc technology. To enable advanced photonics devices, leading companies depend on superior film quality, exceptional uniformity, repeatability and low defectivity with unmatched cost of ownership that Lumina delivers.”
At the heart of the Lumina system is Veeco's MOCVD TurboDisc technology which is said to feature uniformity and low defectivity over long campaigns for high yield and flexibility. In addition, Veeco's proprietary technology is designed to drive uniform injection and thermal control for thickness and compositional uniformity.
The system is capable of depositing high quality As/P epitaxial layers on wafers up to eight inches in diameter. Veeco says that the Lumina system allows users to customise their systems for maximum value in delivering microLEDs, LEDs, edge-emitting lasers and VCSELs in high-volume production.
