Tufts University Selects Veeco MBE Systems

Systems will form basis of new epitaxial core lab

Veeco Instruments has announced that Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts has ordered two GENxplor R&D Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) Systems for cutting-edge compound semiconductor research.

These systems were purchased in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and will be the basis for a new Epitaxial Core Laboratory in the School of Engineering at Tufts.  The lab will be directed by Tufts Professor Tom Vandervelde and staffed by an experienced team to produce samples for Tufts University research as well as others in the research and business community.

"With the introduction of the GENxplor, Veeco has become synonymous with innovative MBE R&D technology," said Tom Vandervelde, faculty professor at Tufts. "The advanced design, multi-chamber capabilities, and ease-of-use made it the ideal choice when we received the NSF grant.  The GENxplor systems will enable our team to make great progress in developing energy-efficient semiconductor devices for solar and electronic applications."

Winner of the CS Industry 2014 award, the GENxplor deposits high quality epitaxial layers on substrates up to 3" in diameter and is used for a wide variety of applications such as developing high-speed transistors, night vision systems, and wireless technology. "The GENxplor has quickly become the MBE system of choice for leading research institutions," said Gerry Blumenstock, VP and business unit manager for Veeco's MBE Operations. "Dr. Vandervelde is a leading figure in the MBE community and his selection of the GENxplor is a testament to Veeco's strong and continuing commitment to the R&D market." 



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.
