Photin complete EIT Manufacturing EVO-R project dedicated to purchase, transfer, and set-up of Aixtron Aix-200RF MOCVD reactor from Ulm University to Photin facility.

This is 3rd reactor purchase for Photin. Acquisition of such well maintained, fully documented, and operational reactor resulted in synergy effects and rapid acceleration of works on Aixtron Aix-200/4 and Aixtron Aix 2400 G1 reactors standing in Photin facility. All Photin reactors are based on VME technology known for ruggedness and reliability.

The Aix-200RF reactor was operational 1 week after transfer, and extensively tested on provisional water cooling and nitrogen supply. Facility works are in progress with outlook to grow first wafers in Q2 of 2022.

Inquiries for growth of 2” wafers on GaSb, GaAs, and InP could be sent to kk{sign}

Would like to acknowledge and express gratitude to prof. Ferdinand Scholz and his PhD students, who for decades worked on upgrades and maintenance of this reactor.
