  • Veeco Receives Order for GaN Production Systems

Photonics Spectra
Sep 2004
Veeco Instruments Inc. of Woodbury, N.Y., has received a $10 million order to supply its GaNzilla metallorganic chemical vapor deposition production systems to Lumileds Lighting of San Jose, Calif., as part of a multiyear agreement for additional systems.

The equipment is key to the high-volume production of GaN-based LEDs, which are used in traffic and automotive lights, and for cell phone and larger liquid crystal display screen backlighting. The deposition step is a determining factor in the brightness and functionality of the devices.

Michael C. Holt, CEO of Lumileds, said the company is looking forward to working with Veeco to expand its GaN production program. Veeco's TurboDisc technology uses a high-speed rotating disk deposition technique.
