Veeco expands R&D portfolio by partnering with Agnitron

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has formed a strategic partnership with Agnitron Technology Inc of Eden Prairie, MN, a focused compound semiconductor R&D company specializing in the refurbishment and upgrade of Veeco legacy metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) equipment.

The partnership will allow universities and institutions to obtain low-cost, reliable MOCVD systems for materials R&D applications. Also, Veeco R&D MOCVD system users will be able to upgrade to Agnitron’s IMPERIUM software platform and have access to the firm’s technical support team.

“Veeco’s technology has served the compound semiconductor R&D and mass-production markets for decades,” says William J. Miller, Ph.D., executive VP of Veeco Process Equipment. “We are taking the next step to expand our R&D reach with Agnitron’s combined MOCVD refurbishment capabilities and differentiated software solutions,” he adds. ”Together, we are launching compelling product offerings to a customer base that we know extremely well – leading research universities and labs around the world.”

IMPERIUM control software is available as an upgrade on Veeco’s legacy Discovery and Explorer Series MOCVD systems, providing increased functionality, productivity and support from the legacy EpiView software. As a Veeco Certified Partner, Agnitron will leverage Veeco’s worldwide sales and service to expand its reach beyond the North American market.

“Partnering with a compound semiconductor equipment leader like Veeco allows us to meet the increasing worldwide demand for highly capable, low-cost MOCVD solutions in the R&D space,” says Agnitron’s president & CEO Dr Andrei Osinsky. “Veeco’s customer connectivity will open doors to new markets in need of complete turn-key MOCVD solutions that are available with matched system components based on specific system and process needs.”

Veeco and Agnitron are exhibiting at the 17th International Conference on Metal Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (ICMOVPE) in Lausanne, Switzerland (13-18 July).
