AdTech chooses OIPT etch systems for IR laser manufacturing UK-based plasma etch and deposition processing system maker Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) says that its Cobra plasma etch systems have been selected by AdTech Photonics Inc for their manufacturing facilities in City of Industry, CA, USA.
AdTech manufactures quantum cascade (QC), interband cascade (IC) and other types of infrared lasers covering the near-, mid- and long-wave infrared spectral regions. The overall process solutions for QCLs, ICLs, vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) as well as other lasers and the local support offered by Oxford Instruments are cited as key factors in their decision to adopt the inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etch Cobra systems.
“We chose Oxford Instruments to supply our ICP etch equipment because of their cutting-edge technology as well as their unparalleled process support, which will be invaluable to our manufacturing processes,” comments Xiaojun Wang, director of Laser Development at AdTech.
The Cobra process solutions are designed to support leading-edge device applications such as lasers, RF, power and advanced LEDs.
“IR-based laser products are entering another exciting phase of growth in the defence, security and environmental markets,” notes Emiel Thijssen, OIPT’s sales director for America. “We are proud to be providing our laser processing solutions to a pioneering production manufacturer such as AdTech Photonics.”
