Israel's Technion purchases Veeco's 25th GENxplor R&D MBE system

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA has received an order for its 25th GENxplor R&D molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system. Introduced in August 2013, the GENxplor system is said to be the top-selling R&D MBE system to universities and research institutions.

To be delivered to Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel, the system will be used by the Oxide Electronics Group for epitaxial growth of high-quality oxide materials, for development into applications including next-generation logic, memory, sensing and optoelectronics devices. The Oxide Electronics Group is a member of the Micro-Nano Electronics Center at the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Faculty of Electrical Engineering at Technion.

"The flexibility and superior technology of the GENxplor system, combined with the unique design of its enhanced e-beam evaporation solution, will enable us to accurately grow materials with exotic physics, which has exciting potential in developing new devices," comments assistant professor Lior Kornblum, who heads the Oxide Electronics Group.

The GENxplor system deposits epilayers on substrates up to 3" in diameter and is used for a wide variety of applications such as developing high-speed transistors, night-vision systems, and wireless technology. Veeco says that its efficient single-frame design combines all vacuum hardware with on-board electronics to make it up to 40% smaller than other MBE systems, saving lab space.
