Genesis Photonics to Increase HB-LED Production
PLAINVIEW, N.Y., June 16, 2011 — Veeco Instruments Inc. announced that Genesis Photonics Inc. has placed a multiunit order for its recently released TurboDisc MaxBright multireactor metallorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system.
The Taiwan-based Genesis Photonics will use the systems to increase capacity for the production of high-brightness LEDs (HB LEDs) being driven by applications in backlighting, lighting, displays and automotive.
The MaxBright system is available in a two- or four-reactor cluster architecture and delivers up to a 500 percent productivity gain and a 2.5x increase in footprint efficiency over the industry-leading K465i system, Veeco said.
Genesis Photonics provides GaN-based LED epi-wafers, and LED chips for lighting, display, backlighting, auto lamp, scientific, industrial and research applications.
Veeco makes equipment to develop and manufacture LEDs, solar panels, hard disk drives and other devices.
