Veeco to Ship First GENxplor R&D MBE System to the University of Oklahoma
PLAINVIEW, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
Veeco Instruments (News - Alert) Inc. (Nasdaq:VECO) announced today that the University
of Oklahoma (OU) will receive the first shipment of Veeco's new
GENxplor™ R&D Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) System early in the fourth
quarter. The GENxplor is a fully integrated deposition system that
creates high quality epitaxial layers on substrates up to 3" in diameter
and is ideal for cutting edge research on a wide variety of materials
including GaAs, nitrides, and oxides.
"The University of Oklahoma is proud to be the first university in the
world that will have the new GENxplor," said Dr. Michael Santos,
University of Oklahoma Professor in Engineering Physics. "The proven
growth chamber and enhanced features of the GENxplor, including robust
process flexibility and convenient access to effusion cells, are ideal
for the materials research we are conducting for technologies such as
lasers, photo detectors, and solar cells. We have two other Veeco MBE
systems in our lab that have performed very well."
In addition to receiving the first tool, Dr. Santos is scheduled to
discuss his latest MBE research at the North America MBE Conference
(NAMBE), occurring today in Banff, Canada.
"The University of Oklahoma is at the forefront of compound
semiconductor materials research, so it is quite fitting that they are
receiving the first GENxplor," commented Jim Northup, Vice President,
General Manager of Veeco's MBE Operations "It has been designed
specifically for the R&D community, combining an easy to use platform
with our world-class MBE performance." Please visit this link for more

Veeco's GENxplor features an efficient single frame design that combines
all vacuum hardware with on-board electronics to make it up to 40%
smaller than other MBE systems, saving valuable lab space. Because the
manual system is integrated on a single frame, installation time is
reduced. The open architecture design of the GENxplor also improves
ease-of-use, provides convenient access to effusion cells, and allows
easier serviceability when compared to other MBE systems. When coupled
with Veeco's recently introduced retractable sources, the GENxplor
system represents the state-of-the-art in oxide materials research.
Veeco's process equipment solutions enable the manufacture of LEDs,
flexible OLED displays, power electronics, hard drives, MEMS and
wireless chips. We are the market leader in MOCVD, MBE, Ion Beam and
other advanced thin film process technologies. Our high performance
systems drive innovation in energy efficiency, consumer electronics and
