Pyro 400 is LayTec’s in-situ solution for precise measurement of GaN real surface temperature during epitaxial growth process. This near-UV pyrometry tool provides a new quality of temperature control with an unrivalled accuracy and is of huge benefit in GaN based LED and laser production because it directly correlates with the final devices emission wavelength.
Pyro 400 can be combined with other LayTec in-situ monitoring systems for simultaneous measurements of GaN surface temperature with pocket temperature, reflectance and wafer curvature.
