RIBER: Order for MBE production machine and services in Europe

RIBER, the global leader for Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) equipment serving the semiconductor industry, is announcing an order including a MBE 49 production system.

At the end of December 2023, German company Innolume ordered a new MBE 49 machine to boost its production capacity for GaAs-based quantum-dot lasers and support the expansion of its markets, in particular the cloud networking market.

Innolume is one of the few companies to produce ultra-high-performance quantum-dot lasers with high reliability, low sensitivity to optical feedback and unrivalled high temperature operation.

The MBE 49 machine will further strengthen the fleet of RIBER machines operated by Innolume. Its acquisition is also accompanied by a major order for services and accessories to modernize an existing machine and increase its productivity by integrating new solutions offered by RIBER.

This new order confirms the market’s adaptation of the MBE 49, one of the most efficient multi-wafer thin-film deposition systems for the development of electronic applications based on compound semiconductors.

It also illustrates the effects of the stimulus plan for the semiconductor industry in Europe.

The order will be delivered in 2024.
