University of Glasgow photonics professor leads MOCVD partnership with CST Global

III-V optoelectronic foundry Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global Ltd (CST Global) of Hamilton International Technology Park, Blantyre, near Glasgow, Scotland, UK (a subsidiary of Sweden-based Sivers IMA Holding AB) says that Richard Hogg, professor of photonics at the University of Glasgow, will lead the project to commission and operate its new metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) system.

Resulting from an academic and commercial collaboration between the University of Glasgow and CST Global, the MOCVD system is owned by the university, supporting a range of research programs, and jointly operated as part of CST Global’s foundry facility.

Hogg is active in researching device physics and engineering, epitaxial processes, fabrication technologies and developing diverse applications for semiconductor devices. “This unique MOCVD collaboration ensures that electronic and photonic research projects in advanced semiconductor materials and devices can be taken seamlessly from the laboratory to commercial volume production,” says Hogg. “Furthermore, our partnership will enhance student academic development in a commercial environment,” he adds. “Operating the MOCVD machine with CST Global allows research projects to utilize adjacent foundry services, if required, and work within an ISO 9001:2015 quality and safety environment.”

Hogg has over 20 years of post-doctoral experience in both industrial and university research. He has worked at NTT Basic Research Laboratories in Japan, and in professor Arakawa’s laboratory at the University of Tokyo as an EU-Japan Fellow. He held a research position at Toshiba in Cambridge, UK and a key foundry management role at Agilent Technologies in Ipswich, UK (the highest-volume III-V facility in Europe at the time).
