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.
