Finisar buys Aixtron MOCVD system
Finisar expands capacity for new tunable lasers and PICs
Finisar Corporation, the designer and manufacturer of optical communications components and subsystems, is expanding its capacity for making tunable lasers, high speed modulators, and photonic integrated circuits (PICs) with an AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD system from German firm Aixtron SE.
To be used in Finisar's Swedish facility in Järfälla, near Stockholm, the new MOCVD depostition system will also support the company's focus on developing new, more highly integrated indium phosphide products, according to Patrik Evaldsson, Vice President and General Manager of Finisar Sweden.
Finisar Corporation already uses Aixtron's Planetary Reactor technology production for lasers and photodetectors.
