to support this explosive growth and strengthen our leadership position in China.”


Peter Collingwood, Veeco’s Senior Vice President, Sales & Service, added, “Many of our customers are building or significantly expanding factories, often in new “LED/green energy” parks. Our training centre in Shanghai was therefore developed specifically to help our Chinese customers “go faster’ to ramp production of LEDs.”


The CTC site, about 1700 square metres in size and housing approximately 40 Veeco employees, is equipped with three classrooms as well as Veeco’s market leading TurboDisc K465i MOCVD system. Training will include TurboDisc MOCVD system introduction, epitaxial process characterisation, and more advanced hands-on training classes in hardware maintenance and trouble-shooting.


Justin Wang, General Manager, Veeco Greater China region, added, “This training centre is the first of its kind to be established for the LED industry in China. Our goal is to train hundreds of engineers to use our MOCVD tools in the next 12 months.”


According to Peeler, “Veeco will invest over $30 million in 2011 to dramatically expand its Asia footprint to help customers continue to accelerate the pace of adoption of LEDs for consumer electronics and solid-state lighting, including additional new R&D/demo and process support sites in Hsinchu, Taiwan (opening in August) and Seoul, Korea (opening early 2012).”


Samsung and Evident Tech sign QD LED patent agreement


Samsung will gain access to Evident’s patent portfolio for all products related to quantum dot LEDs from manufacture of the quantum dot nanomaterials to final LED production.


Evident Technologies and Samsung Electronics have entered into a comprehensive patent licensing and purchasing agreement for Evident’s quantum dot LED technology.


This agreement grants Samsung worldwide access 80 www.compoundsemiconductor.net October 2011


to Evident’s patent portfolio for all products related to quantum dot LEDs from manufacture of the quantum dot nanomaterials to final LED production.


“We are excited that Samsung, the leader in consumer electronics, has licensed our quantum dot technology,” said Clint Ballinger, CEO of Evident Technologies. “We already enjoy a terrific working relationship and look forward to the future of this technology.”


Quantum dots are nanometre-sized semiconductor crystals that have great commercial promise in electronic applications from solar energy conversion to thermoelectrics to LEDs. Evident was the first company in the world to commercialise quantum dot LEDs with products launched in 2007.


Evident Technologies is currently focused on developing next-generation thermoelectric applications using their core quantum dot material technology. “Our goal is to greatly increase the performance of thermoelectric devices through our nano-material advances,” says Ballinger. Thermoelectric devices can be used for solid-state heating and cooling as well as for converting waste heat into electricity directly.


Epistar honours Dow with first-ever supplier award


The firm was recognised for its supply of metalorganic precursors used in the manufacture of LEDs and for its exceptional customer support.


Dow Electronic Materials, a business unit of Dow Advanced Materials, has announced that Epistar Corporation, a world leading high brightness LED epiwafer and chip manufacturer, has awarded its first-ever Supplier Award to the Metalorganic Technologies business of Dow Electronic Materials.


As a supplier to Epistar of metalorganic precursors for the manufacture of high brightness LEDs, Dow was recognised for ensuring the supply of precursor materials, improving product quality, providing excellent material and process support for manufacturing, offering superior customer communications and achieving high customer satisfaction.
