Aixtron CCS MOCVD Reactor To Aid Chinese Institute In Laser Research
The CCS reactor will be used in the development of long-wavelength lasers for applications in telecom, data-com, and sensor networks
Aixtron SE 's new customer FJIRSM – the Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences, has placed an order for one MOCVD system.
The CCS R&D reactor in a 6 x 2-inch wafer configuration is intended for telecommunications diode laser research.
Ordered in the third quarter of 2011, the reactor has been delivered in the first quarter of 2012. A service support team from Aixtron China has installed the reactor in a new cleanroom at the FJIRSM Laser Laboratory.
“After having evaluated the MOCVD market thoroughly, we established that Aixtron offers worldwide the best currently available equipment for our purposes," comments Su, Fab Director of FJIRSM. “Our engineers were very impressed with the ease of operation, run-to-run and wafer-to-wafer uniformity of the CCS system. It is undoubtedly the most suitable platform for the development of the long-wavelength lasers for applications in telecom, data-com, and sensor networks that interest us."
FJIRSM research is focused on laser engineering and technology, promoting the development on the novel key cell technology of solid-state laser and systems integration technology, laser crystals and nonlinear optical crystal material exploration, and engineered growth technology.
FJIRSM was founded in 1960 and today is one of the most influential and comprehensive research bases in China. Specialising in structural chemistry and new crystal materials, FJIRSM comprises eight laboratories equipped with state of the art equipment. Until 2007, FJIRSM was ranked in the Top 10 amongst national research institutions.
Provincial scientific and technological major projects led by FJIRSM have included: "New Materials and Devices", "Optoelectronic Information Materials and Devices", "Solar Energy Electron Materials and Devices."
