AIXTRON MOCVD R&D System to Form Hub of New INCT-DISSE Materials Project at University of Rio de Janeiro

Aug 19, 2010 AIXTRON AG announced a new order for one AIX 200, 1x2 inch configuration deposition system from the Pontificial Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Brazil. The new system will be delivered and installed at the Semiconductor Laboratory (LabSem) of the University.

Materials to be grown on the new MOVPE reactor are InP and GaAs based quantum well and quantum dot structures. Applications cover site control of quantum dot nucleation, photonic crystals, lasers, photodetectors, solar cells, fundamental properties of quantum dots, superlattices and microcavities.

The Brazilian Government recently created the National Science and Technology Institute for Semiconductor Nanodevices (INCT-DISSE). This involves several Brazilian research groups and its headquarters at the Semiconductor Laboratory (LabSem). DISSE membership includes over twenty top level researchers in the field from eight institutions with long experience in specific areas. It carries out applied and basic research in III-V electronic and optoelectronic devices.
