August 23, 2012 — Optoelectronics researchers at the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) ordered an Optofab3000 for Laser Bar Facet Coating from Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology. The advanced ion beam deposition (IBD) tool will deposit high-quality optical thin films for high-power and high-brightness laser diodes (LDs) at 0.63-1.12µm wavelengths, based on III-V semiconductor layer structures.

The tool offered both high-quality deposition and an advanced in-situ optical monitor, said Dr. Götz Erbert, head of the Optoelectronics Department at FBH. The tool can also achieve R&D tasks as well as pilot production, which the institute performs in some cases.
