The novel, improved process chamber of the CRIUS tool enables significantly higher process temperatures than previously available III-V MOCVD reactors. It is designed to deliver the process conditions needed for the manufacture of high performance Blue and UV LEDs which are used for various applications, such as high color rendering LED lighting, curing or photocatalytic purification.

Toshihiro Yokoi, Managing Officer, General Manager of Toyoda Gosei’s Optoelectronics business unit, comments: “The new AIXTRON CCS reactor will support us producing various enhanced LED products since we aim to grow our LED business by expanding the sale of products that will promote the use of LED lighting in Southeast Asia and other regions. Furthermore, we will increasingly focus on industrial-used LEDs (UV LEDs, glass-encapsulated LEDs) and LEDs for automobiles, where we can take advantage of our strengths as an automotive parts manufacturer.”
