Lumentum Places Repeat Aixtron Order
Deposition equipment company Aixtron has announced that US- based Lumentum Holdings, a manufacturer of semiconductor photonic devices, has placed a repeat order for multiple AIX 2800G4-TM MOCVD systems to produce devices for varied optoelectronic and laser applications.
The system is designed for GaAs/InP based optoelectronics and p-HEMT/HBT devices
Lumentum's executive VP and COO, Vince Retort, comments: "We have a longstanding business relationship with Aixtron; and, their local system support teams are excellent and very responsive. Following the successful qualification of the first AIX 2800G4-TM system, we decided to expand our production capacity and ordered additional Aixtron tools. We look forward a collaborative relationship with Aixtron in the future."
"Our AIX 2800G4-TM tool supports Lumentum's technology approach by providing excellent on-wafer uniformity control, unique advanced features for wafer-to-wafer temperature control such as AUTOSAT and low precursor consumption. Furthermore, this highly efficient and flexible system offers various wafer configurations from 2-inch to 6-inch", says Bernd Schulte, executive VP and COO at Aixtron SE.
