Cambridge Centre For GaN Orders Tool To Purify Hydrogen In MOCVD Reactor

The centre will use the tool to remove oxygen, moisture and carbon contamination to ensure a stable process regardless of source gas quality or flow rate in gallium nitride products
Power & Energy Inc. (P+E) , has received an order for a PE9000C Series purifier from The Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride at the University of Cambridge. 

The micro-channel palladium purifier will be used to purify hydrogen for use in a new Aixtron MOCVD reactor. The research team is focused on the cutting edge of GaN research via collaboration with universities and industries throughout the world.

The compact 9000C Series removes oxygen, moisture and carbon contamination to parts-per-trillion levels to assure a stable process regardless of source gas quality or flow rate.

PE9000C Series Hydrogen Purifier

According to Colin Humphreys, the Director of The Cambridge Centre for Gallium Nitride, "We require the highest purity gases for our advanced GaN research, which is why we have chosen the palladium membrane technology in the 9000C Series purifier."

This compact mass spectrometer uses a patent-pending method to concentrate impurities for analysis.

HEMS Hydrogen Analyser

HEMS has a 10 minute analysis cycle time and is self-calibrating.

Three models are available for applications such as semiconductor process control and bulk gas production.

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.
