Versatile in-situ metrology for optoelectronics

LayTec is the market leader for  in-situ metrology for LED and LASER production systems. In-situ monitoring with LayTec systems during the epitaxial growth process helps identify process defects at the earliest possible stage,  enhance yield and improve color uniformity by optimizing processes and enabling optimal control of key parameters.
LayTec in-situ metrology enables fine-tuning of your processes for top performance and  tight production line control. The solutions offer absolute wafer temperature readings, accurate wafer bow measurements and precise multiple wavelength reflectance with fully automated analysis. Discover the best standardized metrology system for your individual demands.

VCSELs (vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers) are currently emerging as a leading technology in rapidly expanding markets like Gesture Recognition, 3D imaging, datacomm and others. For VCSEL epitaxy, LayTec offers in-situ metrology that combines spectral reflectance (for DBR stopbands and cavity dip position sensing) with wafer temperature, growth rate and wafer bow measurements###NOHIDE###. ...more
