AIXTRON AG today announced
that Dalian R&D Center of Optoelectronic Technology at Dalian University
of Technology (DUT), based in Dalian City in P.R. China, has ordered one Close-Coupled
Showerhead (CCS) MOCVD system. To be supplied in the 3x2 inch wafer configuration,
it will be used for the R&D of ultra-high-brightness (UHB) GaN LEDs and
will be delivered in second quarter of 2009.
Mr. Du Guotong, Professor and Director of the Dalian R&D Center of Optoelectronic
Technology comments: "We chose an AIXTRON system in part because we knew
that the Close Coupled Showerhead reactors have particular adaptability to nitride-based
UHB-LED process development. Other outstanding features include their excellent
uniformity of growth while at the same time being easy to operate and maintain.
Plus we know we can always call upon the local AIXTRON team for support. All
things considered I am sure that this is the best MOCVD tool for our R&D
purposes and we look forward to its arrival and commissioning later this year."
Dalian R&D Center of Optoelectronic Technology was co-constructed by Technology
Bureau of Dalian City and DUT. The directions of its research are semiconductor
lighting, semiconductor laser devices and high-density optical storage technology,
fiber optic active, passive components and modules, scientific research equipment
for the optoelectronics industry and solar cells.
Dalian University of Technology (DUT) is one of the key universities under
the direct leadership of the State Ministry of Education. Since its founding
nearly six decades ago the university has enjoyed a high reputation for its
careful management and excellent study environment. With the support of "the
985 Project" and "the 211 Project", bringing forth the spirit
of innovation, DUT is engaged in grasping the historic opportunity of rejuvenating
an old northeastern industrial base. Its plan is to carry out a talent-training
strategy to build DUT into a world-class, research-oriented university.
