Veeco To Reveal Compact MBE Tool

The company says its latest molecular beam epitaxy reactor is the industry’s first integrated MBE System for the compound semiconductor R&D market


Veeco Instruments has introduced the GENxplor Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) deposition system.

The GENxplor can create high quality epitaxial layers on substrates up to 3" in diameter and is ideal for cutting edge research on a wide variety of materials including GaAs, nitrides, and oxides.

 

Latest GENxplor R&D MBE System

“The compound semiconductor R&D community asked for a more affordable, flexible, and easy-to-use MBE system and Veeco has delivered with the GENxplor," says Jim Northup, Veeco’s Vice President and General Manager. “We have repackaged Veeco’s industry-leading MBE technology into a novel ‘all-in-one’ design that combines the reactor and electronics on a single frame. It will change the way researchers use MBE."

The GENxplor uses Veeco’s GEN10 growth chamber design and features process flexibility, ideal for materials research on emerging technologies such as UV LEDs, high-efficiency solar cells, and high-temperature superconductors.

Its efficient single frame design combines all vacuum hardware with on-board electronics to make it up to 40 percent smaller than other MBE systems, saving valuable lab space. And as the manual system is integrated on a single frame, installation time is reduced.

Veeco says the open architecture design of the GENxplor also improves ease-of-use and provides convenient access to effusion cells. And it also allows easier serviceability when compared to other MBE systems. When coupled with Veeco’s recently introduced retractable sources, the system is ideally suited to oxide materials research.

Veeco will be launching the GENxplor at this week’s China MBE Conference in Shanghai.

 



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.
