Trumpf Photonics To Use Aixtron Tool For As/P Laser Growth

The AIX 2800G4 reactor will be used in the production of arsenide and phosphide high power lasers

Aixtron SE has announced that Trumpf Photonics, located in Princeton, New Jersey, USA has taken delivery of an Aixtron AIX 2800G4 MOCVD reactor for high power laser applications.

Carl Miester, Head of Production Semiconductors at Trumpf Photonics states, “Trumpf Photonics has been delivering high quality laser components to the high power laser industry for over 10 years. The recent increase in market demand has required us to upgrade our manufacturing capabilities. We have performed an exhaustive search of the current MOCVD technologies."

He continues, "The enhancements Aixtron has made in the control of the MOCVD process has made it the ideal platform for the challenging structures required for the high power laser market. Aixtron was the platform of choice from our beginnings and we are pleased they will be working with us as we move into the future."

Aixtron’s Chief Operating Officer, Bernd Schulte, adds, “We are particularly pleased with our sustained relationship with the Trumpf organisation and to have the unique opportunity of being a vendor to Trumpf Photonics. Aixtron has maintained its investment in the development of MOCVD technology for all compound semiconductor material systems such as As/P materials for the solid state laser markets. Trumpf’s decision to continue to use our platform provides confirmation that these investments have been successful."

The Trumpf Group has 58 subsidiaries and branch offices in more than 26 countries, employs over 8,500 people, and generates sales in excess of US $2.76 billion. The company is an innovator in sheet metal fabrication machinery and industrial lasers.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
