Jilin university orders Aixtron reactor for LED research

The Chinese university will use the 3 x 2-inch wafer CCS reactor to grow gallium nitride materials for UV and white LEDs
Aixtron SE has a new MOCVD system order from existing customer Jilin University China.

The contract is for one CCS reactor in a 3 x 2-inch wafer configuration, which will be dedicated to the growth of GaN materials for UV and white LEDs.

One of Aixtron’s local support teams has installed and commissioned the new reactor in a state-of-the-art clean-room facility at Jilin University in Changchun, China.

Zhang of the Jilin University, State Key Laboratory on Integrated Optoelectronics, comments, “We already have experience and a very good understanding of Aixtron systems, and we were particularly impressed with the reactor’s ergonomics and security. The system has set the standard amongst the world's best laboratories, thus we intend to join those ranks."

Zhang continues, "Our intention is to develop exciting new material structures that will lead to greater understanding and to production of gallium nitride materials for UV and white LEDs. This is a challenging task, but we are confident that the combination of the process technology capabilities of the CCS reactor and strong backing from the local Aixtron support team will enable us to achieve our aims quickly and efficiently.”
