Finisar purchases Aixtron MOCVD tool for VCSEL production
The AIX 2800G4-R MOCVD system will be used for next generation production of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs)
Aixtron SE today announced a new order for an MOCVD reactor from Finisar Corporation.
Finisar is engaged in the manufacture of fibre optic subsystems and components for communication applications.
The Sunnyvale, California based company placed the order for one AIX 2800G4-R MOCVD system. Following delivery in the second quarter of 2011, it will be used for the production of VCSEL devices. The local Aixtron support team will commission the new reactor by working with Finisar engineers in their Allen, TX facility.
Curt Barratt, General Manager of Finisar Allen, comments, “Finisar is seeing great demand for its VCSEL products. We have just completed an exhaustive search for the equipment set that will not only fulfil our current product demand, but also manufacture our next generation products. The AIX 2800 G4-R system meets these requirements and will be a valuable addition to our manufacturing capabilities.”
With over 20 years of experience, Finisar is a global provider of optical communications subsystems and components that enable high-speed voice, video and data communications for networking, storage, wireless, and cable TV applications.
