PLAINVIEW, N.Y., Jan. 16, 2013 — The Korean Photonics Technology Institute (KOPTI) has purchased a Gen20 molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system from Veeco Instruments Inc. for high-power GaAs-based laser diode research.
The MBE system is an ultraflexible tool with a design configurable for III-V and emerging materials. It will be shipped to KOPTI’s Laser-IT Research Center and Photonics System Lab in Gwangju, South Korea.
“We have selected the MBE Gen20 system for our work in development of high-powered GaAs laser diodes because of its process flexibility and Veeco’s impressive track record in supplying tools to the III-V laser diode market,” said Dr. Swook Hann, head of the Laser-IT Research Center and Photonics Systems Lab. “These are critical elements for KOPTI since we are developing technologies that can be taken from lab to fab.”
Veeco develops process equipment solutions for the manufacture of LEDs, power electronics, hard drives, microelectromechanical systems and wireless chips.
