Veeco MBE reactor for laser diodes
IPG Photonics adds 4th Veeco MBE reactor for laser diodes
Alex Ovtchinnikov, Vice President-Components for IPG, states, “We have been very pleased with the cost of ownership advantages and the unsurpassed performance of our previously purchased GEN200 Systems. Thus, it made sense to scale-up to a higher capacity GEN2000 System to accommodate our needs for increased throughput today. Veeco is a valued IPG partner, offering us timely delivery, professional installation, and unmatched service and support.”
“Repeat orders such as this from IPG attest to the leading performance of Veeco’s cluster-based systems for production applications, as well as the continuing, comprehensive support Veeco offers,” adds Jim Northup, Vice President and General Manager of Veeco’s MBE Operations. “We are pleased to continue to support IPG in their capacity expansion.”
The GEN2000 Edge MBE System is claimed to deliver exceptional wafer quality in high-capacity production applications. Its cluster tool design provides the industry’s most cost effective 7×6” epiwafer growth of devices such as pump lasers, VCSELs and HBTs. Its cluster tool architecture minimises clean-room space and downtime attributed to maintenance, increased throughput; and allows for growth of different materials in connected modules.
IPG Photonics designs and manufactures high-power fibre lasers and amplifiers. Founded in 1990, IPG pioneered the development and commercialisation of optical fibre-based lasers for use in diverse applications, primarily materials processing.
