Riber, a maker of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems, announced the sale of a SIVA 21 research system to the Institute of Automation and Control Processes (IACP), part of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Vladivostok. The machine will be set up in the optoelectronics and electronics physics research center headed by Professor Nicolay Galkin. The system will reportedly enable the laboratory to prepare silicon and germanium-based thin nanostructured layers.
The Russian Academy of Sciences, an organization that actively researches semiconductor physics, is the umbrella organization for Scientific Institutes in the Russian Federation. According to Riber, the 21 Series systems offer unrivaled flexibility in applied research on compound semiconductor materials. Riber says that the new order consolidates the company’s development in Russia, where the semiconductor industry is developing strongly
