Aixtron, National Cheng Kung U. launch R&D program

December 7, 2005 – Aixtron AG, Aachen, Germany, and National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), Tainan, Taiwan, have announced the launch of a new R&D collaboration program for the research of nitride-based photodetectors. This collaboration will focus on the development of Al-Ga-nitride structures with the goal to improve the quantum efficiency of novel UV photo detectors with a wavelength below 300nm.

The nitride based optoelectronic device structures for this development program will be grown by metal organic vapor phase deposition (MOCVD). These MOCVD growth experiments will be performed by NCKU on a horizontal MOCVD reactor, type AIX 200RF.

Prof. Y.-K. Su of NCKU comments: “We are very pleased with Aixtron as a reliable industry cooperation partner for our R&D projects, and with the support that we get through their service organization.”
