In a special feature commentary, we caught up with MOCVD manufacturer Aixtron,
and their Director of Marketing, Rainer Beccard. Rainer has been through the
highs and lows of the compoundsemi and LED markets, and we asked a few questions
of him to catch a sense of Aixtron’s take on the state of the LED industry.
CS/LT: There’s a lot to be excited about in the LED market, especially given
the rapid move to LED backlighting in televisions, and solid state lighting
really beginning to take off. From the perspective of the epitaxial equipment
provider, what are the key things that Aixtron is focusing on to increase the
overall market for LEDs?
