New AIXTRON MOCVD technology center supports China's global LED ambitions
AIXTRON opens training and demonstration laboratory in Suzhou.
A ceremony was held today to mark the opening of AIXTRON SE’s (FSE: AIXA; NASDAQ: AIXG) new training and demonstration center at SINANO - the Suzhou Institute for Nanotechnology and Nanobionics.
At the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) in the Yangtze River Delta – one of China's most influential business locations – future Chinese MOCVD experts will be trained in the latest semiconductor technology and manufacturing processes. The AIXTRON center will be able to draw upon the collaborative synergies between exceptional industrial and institutional research and also offers a very high quality of training.
"In order to achieve China’s aim of global LED leadership, LED products made in China need to be able to take the lead in lighting quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. I believe that this cooperative arrangement will make a significant contribution toward achieving these goals," said a spokesperson for SINANO. "One of the new facility’s main priorities will be to provide Chinese customers with the depth of process knowledge they need in order to optimize their devices."
AIXTRON delivers key-enabling technologies for innovative and energy-efficient applications. The company has more than 30 years of experience in developing MOCVD production technologies for a wide range of innovative and highly complex semiconductor devices, such as LEDs, lasers, transistors and solar cells.
As well as AIXTRON’s focus on best-practice commercial considerations, the new training center in Suzhou, will also pay special attention to operational health and safety issues and to the protection of the environment, by adhering to and promoting German, international and Chinese product-safety and waste-management standards.
