Tufts University Selects Veeco MBE System to Develop Semiconductor Devices for Solar Applications

Veeco Instruments announced today that Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts has ordered two GENxplor™ R&D Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) Systems for cutting-edge compound semiconductor research.

These systems were purchased in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and will be the basis for a new Epitaxial Core Laboratory in the School of Engineering at Tufts.  The lab will be directed by Tufts Professor Tom Vandervelde and staffed by an experienced team to produce samples for Tufts University research as well as others in the research and business community.

“With the introduction of the GENxplor, Veeco has become synonymous with innovative MBE R&D technology,” said Tom Vandervelde, Ph.D., and Faculty Professor at Tufts. “The advanced design, multi-chamber capabilities, and ease-of-use made it the ideal choice when we received the NSF grant.  The GENxplor systems will enable our team to make great progress in developing energy-efficient semiconductor devices for solar and electronic applications.”

Winner of the CS Industry™ 2014 award, the GENxplor deposits high quality epitaxial layers on substrates up to 3” in diameter and is used for a wide variety of applications such as developing high-speed transistors, night vision systems, and wireless technology.

“The GENxplor has quickly become the MBE system of choice for leading research institutions,” said Gerry Blumenstock, Vice President and Business Unit Manager for Veeco’s MBE Operations. “Dr. Vandervelde is a leading figure in the MBE community and his selection of the GENxplor is a testament to Veeco’s strong and continuing commitment to the R&D market.” 

Veeco and the GENxplor MBE System will be at the International MBE Conference in Flagstaff, Arizona September 7-11 in Booth #1-2.
