Location    Aachen, Germany

AIXTRON is recognised as the world leading supplier of equipment for semiconductor epitaxy.  Its equipment is used by a diverse range of customers worldwide to manufacture critical, advanced components such as LEDs, HBTs, MESFETs, lasers and detectors used in fibre optic communications systems, optical storage devices, wireless telephony, illumination and lighting, as well as a range of other leading edge technologies e.g. III/V based high efficiency solar cells.

Main research topics and capabilities
AIXTRON’s customised MOCVD systems are the key technology enabling development and manufacture of compound semiconductors and many other multi-component materials. The AIXTRON MOCVD systems offer user-friendly operation, excellent process stability as well as very high precursor efficiencies and world best uniformities. Together with excellent reliability and high throughput, all these properties lead to a valuable device yield and a high uptime.

MORGaN tasks

  • MOCVD growth on diverse non-standard substrates

  • Optimisation of MOCVD equipment to meet project targets

  • Evaluation of MORGaN technology from industrial perspective

  • Exploitation of all MOCVD equipment related project results.

MORGaN is supported by the European Commission under FP7
