AIXTRON SE says that Chinese optical components developer and manufacturer Wuhan Huagong Genuine Optics Tech Co., Ltd (HG Genuine) has ordered a 6x2-inch close-coupled showerhead (CCS) epitaxial deposition system for production of light emitting and detection devices on indium phosphide substrates.

HG Genuine is one of the manufacturers in China possessing complete mass production lines for epitaxy, chip fabrication, devices, optical modules, and subsystems. The product range covers semiconductor laser and detector chips, active devices and optical transceivers, which are widely applied in digital communication, analog communication, and optical sensor applications.

HG Genuine’s chief scientist, Zhaozhong Wang, said, “This repeat-order reflects our complete satisfaction with the performance of AIXTRON’s technology. Our existing system has demonstrated versatility, ease of operation, and reproducibility. With the new system we will be able to carry out our planned expansion of capacity and to develop high-quality epitaxy products.”

AIXTRON says its CCS 6x2-inch system is designed for research and production. Processes developed using the CCS systems can be easily scaled up for deployment on the larger mass-production CRIUS platforms. The three-zone heater of the CCS provides best temperature uniformity standards, the company claims.
