AIXTRON Announces Delivery of Three MOCVD Systems to Chinese Company

AIXTRON AG today announced the delivery of three Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) CRIUS MOCVD systems for the production of Gallium Nitride (GaN) LEDs to Aqualite Co. Ltd., a company based in Wuhan, China.

The three CCS CRIUS systems were delivered in the 31x2 inch wafer configuration in the third and fourth quarter of 2008. Aqualite intends to utilize these reactors for the development and production of blue, green and white LED chips.

Mr. James Dong, CEO of Aqualite Co. Ltd., comments: "We have researched the market place to identify the best equipment to match our requirements for the volume production of LED chips.

AIXTRON’s MOCVD tools were the ideal match in several respects. Features that we particularly favor include the process versatility, reproducibility and the wafer-to-wafer and run-to-run uniformity. We look forward to once again working closely with our local AIXTRON team, which is always very helpful.”
