Finisar buys Aixtron system for capacity expansion and development of new InP-based products
Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Aachen, Germany says that optical communications component and subsystem maker Finisar Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA has ordered an AIX 2800G4-TM metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system for the design and manufacture of tunable lasers, high-speed modulators and photonic integrated circuits (PICs) at its facility in Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden (which focuses on active optical components such as tunable lasers).
“We need an MOCVD system to support our plans for capacity expansion,” says Patrik Evaldsson, VP & general manager, Finisar Sweden. “In our selection, it was important that the system should also support our focus on developing new, more highly integrated indium phosphide products,” he adds.
