AIXTRON AG announced
today an order for a new MOCVD tool from Nanjing University's Institute of Optoelectronics
(IOE) at Yangzhou. The order is a single AIX 2400G3 HT MOCVD system for development
of ultra-high-brightness (UHB) InGaN/GaN-based LEDs and has been delivered in
the first half of 2009.
Dr. Chen Peng, Professor and Director of IOE, comments: "After a complete
investigation and in consultation with local experts, the AIXTRON MOCVD system
was confirmed as the first choice for our GaN LED research projects. We are
building new capacity and exploring leading LED science and technology. The
system satisfies our needs with the efficiency and stability."
Based on the Collaboration Agreement between Nanjing University and the Yangzhou
local government, the Institute of Optoelectronics at Yangzhou was established
in Dec. 2007 as a research organization. It is located in Yangzhou High-tech
Venture Services Center and has a work space of over 1500 sqm. Focusing on the
research of epitaxial growth, processing and device development of novel optoelectronic
devices, the institute is one of the most important R&D centers for developing
High-Tech industry in Yangzhou City.
