  • LED Maker Buys Veeco MOCVD Systems
Nov 2007
Veeco Instruments Inc. of Woodbury, N.Y., said two of its TurboDisc E450 As/P metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems recently sold to Xiamen Sanan OptoElectronics of Xiamen, China, are being used to expand its capacity for producing red, yellow and orange (ROY) high-brightness LEDs (HB-LEDs). Kechuang Lin, general manager of Sanan, said demand has increased for its LEDs in sign and display applications. Engineered for the high-volume production of compound semiconductor materials, Veeco’s TurboDisc As/P systems are also used in making heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs), pseudomorphic high-electron mobility transistors, solar cells and laser diodes. Xiamen Sanan Optoelectronics makes ultrahigh-brightness LED wafers and LED chips and optical communication devices and is a member of the National Semiconductor Lighting Project, launched by the Chinese government in 2003.

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...
