AIXTRON hosts seminar on LED production in Suzhou, China

Date: 2012-09-15

September 14, 2012... Aachen/Germany–-AIXTRON SE today announced that more than 200 participants, mostly manufacturing customers, attended its MOCVD seminar for LED production held today at the AIXTRON China Ltd. Training Center & Lab in Suzhou, China. The seminar was co-organized by the China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA) and was the first of a series within the framework of AIXTRON’s cooperation with SINANO, the Suzhou Institute for Nanotechnology and Nanobionics.

At the seminar, a focused overview was given into the field of LED and solid-state lighting (SSL) applications, from basic principles of metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) to the latest break-through technologies and solutions.

Prof. Michael Heuken, Vice President Corporate Research and Development at AIXTRON, comments: “It is a real pleasure to welcome so many of our prestigious customers and business partners in Suzhou today and to continue the dialogue with China’s leading LED manufacturers. Our common goal remains to intensify efforts, e.g. how to improve LED quality, increase productivity and yield, and thus achieve more cost-efficient and brighter LEDs.”

Along with presentations from AIXTRON specialists, SINANO reported its latest results to the high-end LED industry and research professionals. Dr. Nicolas Muesgens, Director Demo & Training Center, AIXTRON China Ltd., adds. “The seminar was a further step in helping us to better meet the needs of China’s rapidly expanding SSL industry. We also received positive feedbacks on AIXTRON’s scientifically founded training concept and particularly on the fact that our Demo & Training Center in Suzhou can provide our customers with the experience of working on MOCVD systems under real process conditions.”

Most of the speeches at the seminar were given in Chinese and were presented by AIXTRON’s Chinese trainers. Some of the presentations were derived from AIXTRON’s training package for customers, so the seminar was a good opportunity to experience AIXTRON’s trainers and training methods. At the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) in the Yangtze River Delta future Chinese MOCVD experts are regularly trained in the latest semiconductor technology and manufacturing processes by AIXTRON’s highly skilled engineers.
