Agnitron To Ship 1500degC Reactor Upgrade For MOCVD System

Reactor offers economical growth capability for nitride-based materials and silicon carbide

Agnitron Technology is shipping its latest high temperature reactor upgrade for the Veeco MOCVD D-series Legacy System platform. The single two or three inch wafer, vertical quartz tube reactor upgrade will be fitted to a D180 system at the Korean Photonics Technology Institute (Kopti) in Gwangju, Seoul, South Korea.

According to the company, the High Temperature Radio-Frequency (HT-RF) reactor upgrade provides an economical high temperature growth capability to researchers seeking high quality aluminum nitride (AlN) epitaxial films, which are grown at process temperatures above 1400degC. Additionally, the HT-RF reactor excels at growth of all nitride based materials and is also suitable for silicon carbide.

Ross Miller, director of Agnitron technology development commented: "Ultra-low gas flows of the HT-RF reactor translate to hydride gas consumption 15 percent that of a D180 reactor making this a very capable yet economical choice for researchers." Miller added that Atomic Layer Deposition style switching manifolds are available as an option for supporting Migration Enhanced Epitaxy growth techniques.

Currently the HT-RF reactor is offered as a standalone upgrade for the Veeco Legacy D125 and D180 Nitride MOCVD platforms as well as in the form of an Agnitron original design complete MOCVD system known as Agilis. The Agilis system provides all the process capabilities of the HT-RF reactor but in a compact cabinet with all new electronics and digital hardware communication protocols.

An identical HT-RF reactor upgrade is currently in operation at Agnitron's facility for growth of AlN as part of the power electronics research program funded by the US Department of Energy.

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.
