UMI Georgia Tech-CNRS in France to Grow Nitride Alloy Materials with AIXTRON Reactor
(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 21 November 2012
Release date- 20112012 - Aachen/Germany - AIXTRON SE today announced that its existing customer, UMI Georgia Tech-CNRS in Metz, France, has ordered a new MOCVD system.
The 3x2-inch Close Coupled Showerhead CCS system will be dedicated to the growth of nitride alloy R&D materials for light emitting sources, solar cells, sensors and other applications. AIXTRON Europe's service support team has installed and commissioned the new reactor in a dedicated clean-room at the Georgia Tech-Lorraine campus in Metz.
According to Professor Abdallah Ougazzaden, Director of UMI Georgia Tech-CNRS: 'We are very familiar with AIXTRON MOCVD systems, so this was a straightforward decision to make. The CCS system perfectly matches our R&D plans in respect of GaN, InN, BN and related alloys for light emitting sources, solar cells, sensors and other applications, depending on how the semiconductor market evolves.'
'We formed a strong relationship with Professor Ougazzaden in France and Professor Russell Dupuis from Georgia Tech in the US, both of whom have excellent teams covering all aspects of MOCVD nitride R&D,' AIXTRON's COO Dr. Bernd Schulte adds. 'The Georgia Tech-CNRS International Joint Unit (UMI*) produces excellent scientific output and is actively involved in national and international research programs focusing on secure networks and innovative materials for optics and electronics.'
The Georgia Tech-CNRS International Joint Unit, or 'UMI', is an international research unit established between the Georgia Institute of Technology and CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) to further collaborative research in the fields of telecommunications and innovative materials. Programs include optoelectronic techniques for signal encryption and secure transmission for optical and wireless systems, nonlinear optics, new materials and nanostructures for photonics and electronics, multifunctional materials, the ultrasonic characterization of materials, and the development of new ultrasonic sensors.
