Veeco Achieves Operating Milestone With Ion Beam Etch System

Veeco Instruments announced today that its Nexus Ion Beam Etch (IBE) system has achieved 100,000 operating minutes without failure during commercial production operation.  This milestone demonstrates a five fold increase in grid life, significantly improving total cost of ownership and reducing tool downtime.

"With this improved longevity, our customers do not need to perform preventive maintenance as frequently, resulting in increased tool utilization and decreased operating cost," commented Tim Pratt, senior marketing director of Veeco Advanced Deposition and Etch. 

"As the leading manufacturer of production-proven ion beam technology equipment, we continue to earn the trust of our customers with focused R&D and products to solve their technical and commercial challenges."

Veeco's Nexus IBE systems perform ion-based 'milling' of a variety of materials. Veeco has shipped over 300 ion beam etch modules for production use. 

Veeco's process equipment solutions enable the manufacture of LEDs, flexible OLED displays, power electronics, hard drives, MEMS and wireless chips.



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.
