Veeco Instruments Inc., Woodbury, N.Y., has introduced its new TurboDisc E475 As/P metal organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system to be used in the production of red, orange, yellow (R/O/Y) high-brightness light emitting diodes (HB-LEDs) and multi-junction III-V concentrator solar cells.
"Our TurboDisc E450's ability to produce consistently high yields of premium R/O/Y LEDs and multi-junction solar cell devices with the industry's best throughput made it the top-selling MOCVD tool for these applications," says Dr. Piero Sferlazzo, vice president and general manager of Veeco's MOCVD operations.
"Now, with our next-generation E475, Veeco continues to drive forward the MOCVD technology road map in high-volume production of HB-LEDs and III-V concentrator solar cells," he adds.
The company says its E475 MOCVD system delivers 15% increased capacity and improved cost of ownership metrics compared to its E450 systems. Customers can choose to purchase a new E475 or upgrade its existing E450 tools to the improved specifications.
