NTT Photonics Orders Aixtron CCS Reactor
Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany, a provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry, announced it received an order for one Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) 3 x 3 in. flip-top MOCVD system from NTT Photonics Laboratories in Japan during the second quarter of 2007. The system, to be installed in NTT Photonics Laboratories' cleanrooms, will be used to develop indium phosphide (InP) -based devices. Hiroaki Takeuchi, executive manager of the Advanced Optoelectronics Laboratory at NTT Photonics, said the MOCVD system "will give us the process flexibility, good uniformity in thickness, doping, and composition we need for developing next-generation optical and microelectronic devices."
- Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
- A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
