In conjunction with the International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications (ICULTA-2018) in Berlin, Germany (22-25 April), HexaTech Inc of Morrisville, NC, USA – which manufactures single-crystal aluminium nitride (AlN) substrates and long-life UV-C LEDs for disinfection applications, deep UV lasers for biological threat detection, and high-voltage power switching devices for efficient power conversion as well as RF components for satellite communications – has launched its 2”-diameter aluminum nitride (AlN) substrate product line (available with standard lead times).

“This achievement is the result of our intense, focused research and development activities, producing critical breakthroughs in AlN crystal growth performance,” says CEO John Goehrke. “Together with strong support from our strategic partners, including Osram (as announced last year), we have again raised the bar for AlN substrate technology,” he adds.

“This capability is the leading edge of a long-term, production-oriented product portfolio, which will enable our customers to quickly and easily transition deep-ultraviolet (UV-C) optoelectronic/electronic device development and production to an AlN substrate platform, delivering superior device performance coupled with cost-effective production scaling, process integration, and accelerated time to market,” says Gregory Mills, VP of business development.

“By challenging perceived constraints and aggressively pursuing solutions at each step of the crystal growth process, we have developed a significant shift in capability which breaks previously observed limitations,” reckons Dr Raoul Schlesser, co-founder & VP of crystal and wafer development. The achievement “sets the stage for both continued diameter expansion and increased process yields, ultimately rivaling the price:performance ratio of other mature compound semiconductor technologies, such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium arsenide (GaAs),” he adds.
