II-VI To Speed Up Laser Optic Production With Veeco IBD Tool

The SPECTOR-HT system is claimed to offer higher depostion rates than other tools
II-VI Incorporated has ordered the SPECTOR-HT Ion Beam Deposition (IBD) System and added Veeco’s new Quest Optical Monitor, for use in its high-volume production of laser optics.

Veeco says its SPECTOR-HT IBD System produces high quality optical thin films with improved levels of productivity and throughput.

The Quest Optical Monitor provides up to ten times improvement in layer thickness accuracy compared to previous generations for precise manufacturing control.

“Veeco’s SPECTOR-HT IBD System allows us to deliver high quality laser optics faster by achieving superior deposition rates while maintaining exceptional film qualities," says Mark West, General Manager, II-VI Infrared. “The Veeco Quest Optical Monitor upgrade is an incredible breakthrough. It ensures we will have a repeatable, highly productive operation using the latest technology, enabling us to produce the highest quality laser optics."

Headquartered in Saxonburg, Pennsylvania, II-VI specialises in engineered materials and optoelectronic components. Veeco is an focuses on MOCVD, MBE, Ion Beam and other advanced thin film process technologies.

“II-VI is an optical coating leader and their endorsement of the SPECTOR-HT is clear indication of its exceptional value," continues Jim Northup, Vice President and General Manager of Veeco MBE, Optical Systems and Ion Sources. “As the optics industry seeks faster deposition rates and more repeatable processes, Veeco's SPECTOR-HT IBD System, coupled with the new Quest Optical Monitor, achieves unprecedented levels of productivity by offering the highest throughput for optical thin film manufacturers."



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.
