Aixtron Wins Another Order From HG Genuine

The Chinese company will increase production of III/V (specifically indium phosphide (InP)) based optical components
Chinese company Wuhan Huagong Genuine Optics Tech Co., Ltd (HG Genuine) has ordered an Aixtron 6 x 2-inch Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) epitaxial deposition system.

The reactor will be used to manufacture light emitting and detection devices on InP substrates.

HG Genuine’s Chief Scientist, Zhaozhong Wang, says, “This repeat-order reflects our complete satisfaction with the performance of Aixtron’s technology. Our existing system has demonstrated versatility, ease of operation and reproducibility. With the new system we will be able to carry out our planned expansion of capacity and to develop high quality epitaxy products. I am looking forward to another smooth ramp-up as well as the excellent service, installation and operation we have come to expect from Aixtron’ service team."

HG Genuine is one of the manufacturers in China possessing complete mass production lines for epitaxy, chip fabrication, devices, optical modules and subsystems. The product range covers semiconductor laser and detector chips, active devices and transceivers, which are widely applied in digital communication, analogue communication and optical sensors.

Aixtron’s CCS 6 x 2-inch system is designed for research and production. Processes developed using the CCS systems can be easily scaled up for deployment on the larger mass-production CRIUS platforms. The three-zone heater of the CCS is claimed to provide the best temperature uniformity standards.


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.
