Veeco Hooks Up With UCSB Nitride Team

Equipment vendor Veeco Instruments will be involved in the development of new materials and new epitaxy methods with leading nitride researchers at UCSB.

MBE and MOCVD equipment vendor Veeco Instruments has joined the solid-state lighting and development center (SSLDC) at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB).

UCSB researchers including Shuji Nakamura and Steven DenBaars "“ the SSLDC executive director "“ will work with Veeco on the development of novel materials, as well as new epitaxial techniques, to advance the field of solid-state lighting (SSL).

Last week, UCSB researchers were backed by the US Department of Energy (DoE) through its latest SSL research funding round. They will be working on a DoE-funded project entitled "high-efficiency nitride-based photonic crystal light sources".

Using photonic crystals in the LED should maximize the light output from the devices by extracting light that would normally be confined within the structure.

DenBaars said: "Veeco is a perfect addition to the center's team. Its extensive epitaxial reactor design knowledge and process insight will contribute greatly to the advancement of the center's goals."

William Quinn, Veeco's chief technologist in the compound semiconductor division, commented, "This relationship allows Veeco to collaborate with some of the top researchers in the world towards the development of future evolutions of compound semiconductor technology."
