Riber Receives Research Machine Order From China
The MBE reactor will be used for growing gallium nitride based optoelectronic materials.
Riber, a global provider of MBE equipment, is announcing the sale of a Compact21 GaN system to a State Key Laboratory in China.
The tool will enable the customer laboratory to increase its research capability on nitride optoelectronic materials and technology design and to develop new industrial applications. GaN is used to manufacture components in the areas of telecom (mobile phone applications, CATV components) and sustainable energy (high brilliance LEDs, convertors for hybrid vehicles, photovoltaic cells components).
Riber has commissioned a large number of MBE machines for GaN deposition. The company says this new order strengthens its pivotal position in the Chinese market and more generally in the Far East which is the most rapidly expanding region in the compound semiconductor industry.
