GaAs Recycling Saves Money
• Wafers can be processed more than once for additional savings
• Diameters up to 150mm diameter
• 3-step polishing process for high quality finished product
As GaAs wafer usage continues to rise, GaAs reclaim becomes an even more important cost savings tool – allowing your company to decrease prime wafer purchases. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) is one of the most important compound semiconductor materials in the world, and it has wide applications in wireless, optoelectronics, and Solar Cells. As a cost-savings measure, companies are forced to re-use substrates when feasible. Most of the major GaAs companies in the Unites States have reclaimed 4” and 6” GaAs wafers for many years. Diameters of 2”, 3”, 4”, 5”and 6” wafers can be processed and re-polished. Process Monitor wafers or Production-Rejects can be reclaimed 2-3 times and used as Test Grade material. Wafers with layers consisting of epitaxy, photo-resist, metal coating, dielectrics, etc. can be reclaimed 2-3 times as well.
Why waste money on prime wafers when you can have your used Gallium Arsenide recycled into mechanical-test grade wafers for all your calibration needs? Contact Wafer World, Inc. for more information.
