High performance, custom III-V epitaxial wafers

Epitaxial Wafers

Epitaxial devices are the key to improving the performance of semiconductor-reliant products like smartphones, tablets, datacenters, displays and fiberoptic networks. Epitaxial devices consist of nanolayers of semiconductor crystals that are uniformly deposited in sophisticated deposition tools to form an “epi-wafer.” Combining different semiconductor materials and dopants in an epi wafer is the key step in determining the performance capabilities of photonics and RF semiconductor components.
