Finisar orders another Aixtron G4 MOCVD system for InP lasers and detectors
Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says that it has received a repeat order for an AIX 2800G4-TM automated metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system - dedicated to the growth of indium phosphide materials for lasers and detectors - from fiber-optic communications component and subsystem maker Finisar Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA.
The new order has been placed after the first AIX 2800G4-TM system was installed and qualified at Finisar’s facility in Allen, TX, USA. Aixtron’s local support team will install and commission the new reactor at Finisar’s plant in Fremont, CA, targeting later this year.
“There are several key features we look for in an automated MOCVD system, and they are well addressed by Aixtron,” says Charles Roxlo Ph.D., Finisar VP & general manager, Active Devices. “The AIX 2800G4-TM reactor provides the best means to create high-performance optical device products that fulfill the necessary requirements of our customers,” he adds.
“As a manufacturer of world class lasers and photodetectors for use in their broad product line of transceivers and transponders, Finisar is another prized customer with whom we will enjoy working with in the coming months,” comments Dr Bernd Schulte Aixtron’s executive VP & chief operating officer.
