Aixtron announced that a US Tier-1 LED producer has selected Aixtron's AIX G5+ C equipment. Aixtron did not provide any more detials on this specific deal, but it does say that its new customer is "one of the world's technology leaders in the field of advanced LED technology".

Aixtron says that this AIX G5+ C system uses wafer-level control (based on Auto-Feed Forward) of the film surface temperature during the epitaxial process in combination with Ultraviolet (UV) pyrometry. This warrants, according to Aixtron, a very accurate control of the Indium incorporation into the Multi-Quantum wells (MQW), which will ultimately define the wavelength consistency among all produced wafers.
