Nantong Tongfang Chooses Veeco For GaN-on-Silicon LED Research

The Chinese firm selected Veeco's MOCVD system for gallium nitride-on-silicon HBLED research
Nantong Tongfang Semiconductor has received a Veeco's TurboDisc K465i MOCVD System for research of GaN-on-silicon high brightness LEDs. The system was delivered to Tongfang’s new LED Technology Centre in Nantong, China.

Liu Gang, General Manager of Nantong Tongfang Semiconductor, says, “We successfully utilise Veeco’s MOCVD systems in our current production of GaN-on-sapphire based LEDs. It was the logical choice to select Veeco for our new research into GaN-on-silicon based LED devices. This is going to be a significant focus of our future R&D investment over the next few years."

Jeff Hawthorne, Veeco’s Senior Vice President, MOCVD, adds, "Many of our LED customers are developing GaN-on-silicon technology, which offers the potential to accelerate the adoption of solid-state lighting by reducing the cost of making LEDs without compromising end-product quality. We are glad to support Tongfang in their research efforts."

The K465i features high film quality and low defects, which are key for GaN-on-silicon processing. The reactor also incorporates Veeco's Uniform FlowFlange technology for superior uniformity and excellent run-to-run repeatability. Low maintenance TurboDisc technology enables highest system availability, excellent particle performance and high throughput. Veeco says the K465i provides ease-of-tuning for fast process optimisation on wafer sizes up to 8 inches and fast tool recovery time after maintenance.

Nantong Tongfang Semiconductor Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of the publicly traded Tsingua Tongfang Co., Ltd., produces and develops LED modules and LED lighting products.



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.
