AIXTRON SE today announced that the University of Wroclaw in Poland has successfully started-up a 3x2-inch AIXTRON Close Coupled Showerhead® (CCS) MOCVD equipment to create optoelectronic devices, in particular highefficiency multi-junction solar cells, based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) related materials.
Prof. Marek Tlaczala comments: “We decided to purchase the AIXTRON system based on our good experience with the performance of our existing CCS 3x2-inch gallium nitride tool in the Faculty of Microsystem Electronics and Photonics. The new Showerhead reactor is destined for the University’s Interuniversity Didactic-Technological Center ‘TECHNOPOLIS’ in Wroclaw.”
Dr. Frank Schulte, Vice President of AIXTRON Europe, adds: “The Close Coupled Showerhead® (CCS) concept is recognized as a robust route to uniformity and scalability. We are very pleased that the University of Wroclaw has chosen our system for its most advanced center TECHNOPOLIS and are looking forward to continue our close collaboration with our customer’s excellent technical team.”
