University of Wroclaw starts up second Aixtron 3x2” CCS MOCVD system

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says that the University of Wroclaw in Poland has started-up a 3x2-inch Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) MOCVD system to create optoelectronic devices, in particular high-efficiency multi-junction solar cells, based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) related materials.

“We decided to purchase the Aixtron system based on our good experience with the performance of our existing CCS 3x2-inch gallium nitride tool in the Faculty of Microsystem Electronics and Photonics,” says professor Marek Tlaczala. “The new Showerhead reactor is destined for the University’s Interuniversity Didactic-Technological Center ‘TECHNOPOLIS’ in Wroclaw,” he adds. The center is co-funded by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) within the framework of the Infrastructure and Environmental Programme and Poland’s national budget.

“The Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) concept is recognized as a robust route to uniformity and scalability,” says Dr Frank Schulte, VP of Aixtron Europe. “We are looking forward to continue our close collaboration.”
