Jilin University Places AIXTRON Reactor Order for GaN UV and White LED Research

AIXTRON SE announced a new MOCVD system order from existing customer Jilin University China. The contract is for one CCS reactor in a 3x2-inch wafer configuration, which will be dedicated to the growth of gallium nitride materials for UV and white LEDs.

One of AIXTRON’s local support teams has installed and commissioned the new reactor in a state-of-the-art clean-room facility at Jilin University in Changchun, China.

Dr. Zhang of the Jilin University, State Key Laboratory on Integrated Optoelectronics, comments, “We already have experience and a very good understanding of AIXTRON systems, and we were particularly impressed with the reactor’s ergonomics and security. The system has set the standard amongst the world's best laboratories, thus we intend to join those ranks. Our intention is to develop exciting new material structures that will lead to greater understanding and to production of gallium nitride materials for UV and white LEDs. This is a challenging task, but we are confident that the combination of the process technology capabilities of the CCS reactor and strong backing from the local AIXTRON support team will enable us to achieve our aims quickly and efficiently.”

Jilin University is a leading national university under the direct jurisdiction of China's Ministry of Education. Founded in 1946 and located in Changchun, the capital city of Jilin Province in Northeast China, the university is made up of eight campuses across five districts, which are home to thirty-nine colleges covering twelve academic disciplines. The University boasts sixteen disciplinary areas, six state key laboratories, and eight national bases for the development of basic science. Other resources include seven key laboratories sponsored by the Ministry of Education and eleven by other ministries of the Chinese government.
