AIXTRON AG today announced that CIOMP, the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics & Physics, based in P.R. China, has ordered two new MOCVD systems: one AIX 200/4 and one AIX 200/4 RF-S. They will be used for the development of ultra-high-brightness (UHB) GaN-based LEDs and AlInGaP-based red diode lasers and will be delivered in the second quarter 2009.

China's CIOMP orders AIXTRON MOCVD tools for LEDs and lasers

Aachen, Germany | Posted on May 5th, 2009

Professor and Executive Director of Key Laboratory of Excited State Processes, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Mr. Song Hang, comments: "After a survey of all of the possible options as regards MOCVD tools it quickly became clear which the best solution for our needs is. Now we look forward to working with the AIXTRON true high temperature capable epitaxy system. I'm sure it is going to make an enormous contribution to our nitride research. China has made a strategic commitment to advanced optoelectronic devices and UHB LEDs and red laser diodes in particular. We have formulated a plan to introduce two new advanced MOCVD tools to our new state of the art facilities via a contract with AIXTRON AG. They have demonstrated that their overall package of process know-how, technical excellence and support will ensure we have a quick and straightforward commissioning of the new tools in the coming months".

Professor Wang Lijun, who will be responsible for the diode laser AlInGaP-based system, adds: "AIXTRON's AIX 200/4 will become our principal R&D system and I am confident that it will be the best match to our specific laser fabrication development requirements. It has attractive new features which together with the implemented design innovations will, I believe, optimize the uptime and yield for AlInGaP epitaxial layer deposition".

CIOMP is the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics & Physics within the Chinese Academy of Sciences and was founded in 1952. It has created ten of China's firsts in technology such as the first ruby laser. In recognition of its contribution to China's science and technology development it has been honored as 'The Cradle of China's Optics'. Its associated Changchun OE Industrial Park is becoming a base for science, R&D, product development and professional training in the optoelectronics field in China.
