Aqualite Purchases Three AIXTRON MOCVD Tools for LED Chips
(Nanowerk News) AIXTRON AG today announced the delivery of three
Close Coupled Showerhead® (CCS) CRIUS® MOCVD systems for the production of Gallium
Nitride (GaN) LEDs to Aqualite Co. Ltd., a company based in Wuhan, China.
The three CCS CRIUS® systems were delivered in the 31x2 inch wafer configuration in the
third and fourth quarter of 2008. Aqualite intends to utilize these reactors for the development
and production of blue, green and white LED chips.
Mr. James Dong, CEO of Aqualite Co. Ltd., comments: "We have researched the market
place to identify the best equipment to match our requirements for the volume production of
AIXTRON’s MOCVD tools were the ideal match in several respects. Features that we
particularly favor include the process versatility, reproducibility and the wafer-to-wafer and
run-to-run uniformity. We look forward to once again working closely with our local AIXTRON
team, which is always very helpful.”
