Taiyuan University selects Aixtron reactor for GaN blue LED
The Chinese university’s first Aixtron epitaxial growth system for gallium nitride LEDs is a 3x2-inch CCS system and was chosen for its versatility and low material consumption.
Aixtron SE has a new order for an MOCVD reactor from new customer Taiyuan University of Technology, China.
The order is for one Aixtron Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) 3x2-inch configuration deposition system which will be used for research into GaN-based materials for high-brightness (HB) blue LEDs.
The system will be delivered in the second quarter of 2011. One of Aixtron´s local support teams in China will commission the new reactor in a new state of the art facility at the University.
Jian Liang, Professor of Taiyuan University of Technology’s Material College State Laboratory, comments, “This will be our first Aixtron epitaxial growth system though we are already very familiar with this technology and know well of the reputation of this company’s equipment and service. The Close Coupled Showerhead system is an ideal choice for us because it satisfies so many criteria. We are particularly interested in its versatility as well as stand-out factors such as low material consumption. These will ensure that this system is so much superior for our University research project.”
Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2002, Taiyuan University of Technology comes under the authority of the provincial government of Shanxi, China. Historically, although it was originally part of Shanxi University it did not become an independent university until much later. Today it is listed officially as one of the 'Top 100 Universities in China' according to the Chinese government.
