Aixtron sells enhanced 5x4-inch CRIUS MOCVD system to Toyoda Gosei for blue and UV LED production

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany says that Japan's Toyoda Gosei has bought an enhanced 5x4-inch CRIUS Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) system - scheduled for delivery in first-half 2017 - to manufacture blue and ultraviolet (UV) LEDs.

Aixtron says that the novel, improved process chamber of the CRIUS tool enables significantly higher process temperatures than previously available III-V MOCVD reactors. It is designed to deliver the process conditions needed for the manufacture of high-performance blue and UV LEDs, used for applications such as high-color-rendering LED lighting, curing or photocatalytic purification.

"The new Aixtron CCS reactor will support us producing various enhanced LED products since we aim to grow our LED business by expanding the sale of products that will promote the use of LED lighting in Southeast Asia and other regions," says Toshihiro Yokoi, managing officer, general manager of Toyoda Gosei's Optoelectronics business unit. "Furthermore, we will increasingly focus on industrial-used LEDs (UV LEDs, glass-encapsulated LEDs) and LEDs for automobiles, where we can take advantage of our strengths as an automotive parts manufacturer," he adds.
