Riber Gets Research System Order

University of Chicago orders fully automated new generation Compact 21 system

MBE specialist Riber has announced an order from the University of Chicago for a fully automated new generation Compact 21 system (with enhanced cell and equipment capabilities, including electron-gun).

This system will be placed at the Argonne Research Laboratories in Lemont, IL, as part of a joint research project on new oxides and oxychalcogenide materials deposition between Argonne and the University of Chicago.

Argonne is a National Laboratory depending on US Department of Energy's (DoE), Office of Science whose main fields of research are in Photovoltaics and Energy Storage applications. The focus of the group is concerning new energy conversion and power-efficient energy technologies.

The Compact 21 Cluster is described by the company as one of the market's best performing thin-film deposition research systems. It has been chosen for its high level of flexibility, its reliability, and its ability to be run remotely to share with research groups all over the world.

This order, recorded on February 17th, should be delivered to Argonne National Laboratory before the end of 2016.

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.
