JENOPTIK expands high power laser production with new AIXTRON system
Press Releases - As issued by company
May 31, 2012... Aachen, Germany -- AIXTRON SE today announced a new MOCVD systems order from existing customer JENOPTIK Diode Lab GmbH in Germany. The contract is for one AIX 2600G3 IC MOCVD reactor in a 12x4-inch wafer configuration to form the basis of a new capacity expansion for high power semiconductor laser diode epitaxial materials at JENOPTIK’s Lasers & Material Processing Division.
The order was placed in the fourth quarter of 2011 and delivery will take place in the second half of 2012. AIXTRON Europe support team will install and commission the new reactor in JENOPTIK’s brand new dedicated production facility in Berlin-Adlershof.
A spokesman from JENOPTIK Diode Lab GmbH comments, “Due to increasing demand as a result of high levels of customer satisfaction, particularly from Asia, it is likely that our existing production facility in Berlin will soon reach the limits of its capacity, and it is therefore being expanded. As the new facility will more than double our production capacities, we need to introduce more MOCVD capability. AIXTRON equipment has served us very well, and we now wish to bring in the AIX 2600G3 IC MOCVD reactor in order to better respond to high levels of customer satisfaction and demand. The quality of technology and the efficiency of service we receive from AIXTRON are second to none. Having them working closely with us will guarantee the success of our expansion plans.”
Production of laser bars is a field in which JENOPTIK is considered a leading supplier and acknowledged world leader with regard to quality. From its own production facility in Berlin-Adlershof, which has been operating since 2006, optoelectronic base materials are developed in cooperation with the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut for Ultra High Frequency Technology (FBH). Laser bars from Berlin-Adlershof are processed to create high-power diode lasers at JENOPTIK in Jena as part of the complete technology chain through to laser systems for material processing. The new manufacturing facility will be automated and equipped with state-of-the-art production technology.
