EXALOS orders Veeco's Propel GaN MOCVD platform for R&D on SLEDs

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that EXALOS AG of Schlieren, Switzerland has ordered a Propel gallium nitride (GaN) metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) system (for delivery in third-quarter 2018) for R&D on broadband superluminescent light-emitting diodes (SLEDs).

As a hybrid between LEDs (which emit broadband light from a surface in all directions) and laser diodes (which emit narrowband light from a waveguide with a well-defined laser beam), superluminescent LEDs emit broadband light in a highly directional beam through electrical current injection, and are used in medical and industrial imaging, motion control detectors, navigation, optical sensing and metrology applications.
