Oxford Instruments Hosts Asian Seminars In The Far East

The talks included GaN-on-silicon, HB-LED, SiC and III-V developments
Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology has just completed its series of Asian seminars in Beijing, China and Hsinchu, Taiwan, attracting a record total attendance of over 250 people.

The seminar in Beijing was co-hosted by the Institute of Semiconductors, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IOS-CAS) one of the most important bases for the research and development of semiconductor science and technology in China. Its counterpart in Taiwan was co-hosted by ITRI, one of Taiwan’s leading non-profit R&D organisations with over 5,800 employees.

Both seminars featured a range of International and national speakers including Yang Fuhua from IOS-CAS in China and Chyi, Jen-Inn, Executive Vice President, National Applied Research Laboratories in Taiwan.

The talks covered a number of key areas including GaN on silicon power device development, SiC wide bandgap semiconductors for power electronics applications and MEMS devices, processes and trends.

Shao-Chung Hsu, Executive Director of ITRI South Campus gave a welcome address at ITRI, and commented, “At ITRI we actively encourage our collaborations with leading industrial companies, and are delighted to join Oxford Instruments this week and hold such an informative conference. Oxford Instruments has an excellent cleanroom facility established here at ITRI so it is fitting for us to host an event covering the wide range of applications that the Oxford Instruments systems can offer including MEMS, HBLED, ALD and III-V. "

He continued, "Talks about the recent progress in their research and development and future trends in the fabrication and applications in micro and nano structures, gave the audience from academia and industry much opportunity for discussion. We hope to hold more events like this with Oxford Instruments at ITRI."

Frazer Anderson, Business Group Director at Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology introduced the company at both seminars and summarises the company’s pleasure at the events’ success last week,

“These technical seminars in China and Taiwan gave us and our audiences a great opportunity to spend time being updated by a wide range of eminent speakers, in a relaxed atmosphere where we can share experiences and learn more from our peers. As a company our ethos is to use innovation to turn smart science into world class products, and by working closely with partners at the top of their field and learning about their evolving requirements, their research and technological developments, we hope to achieve this," he said.

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.
