Apollo Precision Orders Crius

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
AACHEN, Germany, Dec. 20, 2010 — Aixtron AG announced that Apollo Precision Ltd., a new customer from Quanzhou, Fujian Province, China, has recently ordered an MOCVD reactor.

Comprising one Crius 31 x 2-in. configuration deposition system, the order was placed in the third quarter of 2010, with delivery to take place this month. The system will be utilized for production of LED backlight units. Production of the reactor took place at Aixtron’s production plant in China.

“We are making a new investment to enter the LED epitaxy business, and the Crius reactor will form the basis of our growth plans,” said ShuLin Wang, COO of Apollo Precision. “This new business undertaking will be an interesting experience for us, but we feel confident with the CCS Crius system, one of the world’s most productive MOCVD systems for production of GaN-based LEDs.”

Apollo Precision, through its subsidiaries, manufactures specialized equipment for the production of thin-film photovoltaic modules.

Aixtron provides deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry.

A well controlled thin films technique for growing films with good crystal structure in ultra high vacuum environments at very low deposition rates. Epitaxy methods are well known for the growing of single crystals in which chemical reactions produce thin layers of materials whose lattice structures are identical to that of the substrate on which they are deposited. Some examples are molecular beam epitaxy, liquid phase epitaxy and vapor phase epitaxy. Molecular beam epitaxy is also commonly...
In chemistry, a device in which a chemical reaction takes place. In electronics, a device that introduces reactance into a circuit.
thin film
A thin layer of a substance deposited on an insulating base in a vacuum by a microelectronic process. Thin films are most commonly used for antireflection, achromatic beamsplitters, color filters, narrow passband filters, semitransparent mirrors, heat control filters, high reflectivity mirrors, polarizers and reflection filters.
