Mitsubishi Boosts Production of DVD Laser Devices

April 9, 2003
Aachen, Germany & Itami, Japan, April 9, 2003. Mitsubishi Electric Corp. has started mass-production of high-power lasers for DVD applications on AIXTRON AIX 2400/2600G3 Planetary Reactor Systems. The red semiconductor laser has an output power of 100mW and 140mW at a wavelength of 650nm and is compatible with both write-once DVD-R and DVD+R formats.

Aachen, Germany & Itami, Japan, April 9, 2003. Mitsubishi Electric Corp. has started mass-production of high-power lasers for DVD applications on AIXTRON AIX 2400/2600G3 Planetary Reactor Systems. The red semiconductor laser has an output power of 100mW and 140mW at a wavelength of 650nm and is compatible with both write-once DVD-R and DVD+R formats.

Mitsubishi Electric now produces about 1 million units per month and plans to double its production within the next months following the strong market demand for these devices. Furthermore, a red laser with an output power of 200mW suitable for writing onto DVDs at a speed of 16x has been developed. Shipments of this new laser are planned to start in 2004.

Shigeji Kinoshita, Manager of the Wafer Manufacturing Department noted, "The Planetary Reactor offers the most convincing solution to the strict requirements with respect to layer quality and system up-time for high-volume production. The deposition uniformity and the reproducibility of the system meets our precise production requests. Furthermore, we are very satisfied with the superior quality of the customer support and service which has been provided by AIXTRON."

Mitsubishi Electric is a leading manufacturer of optoelectronic devices produced with Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and continues to focus on maintaining its world leading market position and advanced level of technology. Their commitment to expanding their compound semiconductor business has been underlined by the successful installment of several AIXTRON systems.
