AIXTRON SE is a leading provider of deposition equipment to the semiconductor industry.
The Company was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Herzogenrath (near Aachen), Germany, with subsidiaries and sales offices in Asia, United States and in Europe.
AIXTRON´s technology solutions are used by a diverse range of customers worldwide to build advanced components for electronic and opto-electronic applications based on compound or organic semiconductor materials. Such components are used in a broad range of innovative applications, technologies and industries. These include Laser and LED applications, display technologies, data transmission, SiC and GaN power management and conversion, communication, signaling and lighting as well as a range of other leading-edge applications.
AIXTRON supplies its customers with both material deposition systems for high volume manufacturing and small-scale systems for Research & Development (“R&D”) or pilot production.
Demand for AIXTRON’s products is driven by further increasing processing speed, increased requirements for energy efficiency and the necessity to reduce the cost of ownership for current and emerging power- and optoelectronic components. The ability of AIXTRON’s products to deposit thin material films precisely, enables manufacturers to improve performance, yield and quality in the fabrication process of advanced power- and optoelectronic devices.
AIXTRON’s product range includes customer-specific systems capable of depositing material films on a diverse range of different substrate sizes and materials.
The deposition technologies for opto and power electronics include Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) for the deposition of compound materials to produce for instance Lasers, LEDs, GaN and SiC power electronics or other optoelectronic components. PECVD is being employed for the deposition of complex Carbon Nanostructures (Carbon Nanotubes, Nanowires or Graphene).
For organic electronics applications including Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs), APEVA offers the thin film deposition technologies Polymer Vapor Phase Deposition (PVPD) and Organic Vapor Phase Deposition (OVPD).
