Order of a new research machine in the United States

Bezons, March 1520228:00am – RIBER, a world leader in the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) equipment market for semiconductors industry, is announcement of an order a MBE 32 research system in United States.

EPIR Inc., a company based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, USA, has just acquired a new MBE 32P MCT research machine to expand its manufacturing base and continue to provide its customers with state-of-the-art equipment.

EPIR Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sivananthan Laboratories Inc., is a fast-growing, high-tech company developing advanced HgCdTe (Mercury-Cadmium Telluride – MCT) semiconductors for sensing and imaging devices infrared. EPIR uses custom material growth technology, enabled by RIBER’s Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) equipment and comprising multiple epitaxial layers grown either on lattice-matched CdZnTe for high-performance applications or on substrates of silicon for a lower cost approach.

Dr Silviu Velicu, President of EPIR, said: “RIBER has been the main supplier of equipment for our MBE needs for the past two decades and this new acquisition is a testament to the quality and reliability of the products they supply. The new MBE 32 The MCT system to be installed at EPIR will help us meet the increased commercial and government needs for high quality HgCdTe.

Dr. Paul Boieriu, COO of EPIR, expects HgCdTe with high purity, low defect densities and high uniformity over large areas to show peak performance soon after testing. installation of the MBE 32P MCT system in early 2023.

Philippe Ley, Chairman of the Management Board of RIBER, concluded: “Our MBE 32 product line has been around for 40 years with an installed base of several hundred systems around the world. Among the wide range of materials that can be processed, epitaxial growth of mercurycontaining compounds is one of the most demanding thin film depositions characterized in MBE. For four decades RIBERThe MBE 32P from has excelled in the area of ​​MCT growth where unsurpassed benchmark grade material has been produced leading to manufacturing ever more impressive devices. There is no more powerful endorsement than the repeat business of system we see here again as our company is honored with another MCT 32P order from EPIR who we know has complete confidence in the transfer and upgrading existing processes from long-established work reactors to our modern version of this legendary MBE system. We wish all EPIR members continued success in these most demanding R&D programs.
