IMEC and Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corp. (TNSC) have signed an agreement to jointly develop manufacturing technology for high efficiency LED devices. The agreement marks the first time for TNSC to collaborate with an advanced research center based in Europe.

There is an increasing demand to develop brighter green LEDs for future applications such as back light for high vision LCD TV. Under the agreement, TNSC and IMEC will develop high-efficiency green LED device manufacturing technology based on IMEC's compound semiconductors device technology. Research is mainly carried out at the IMEC facilities in Leuven, Belgium and builds on IMEC's know-how in strain engineering on large wafer diameter, supported by in-situ growth monitoring.

"The collaboration with Taiyo Nippon Sanso, a total solution provider in the compound semiconductor field including metal organic materials, gas supply system, purification, abatement system and MOCVD tool, enables us to accelerate the development of high efficiency green LED manufacturing technology," said Gilbert Declerk, president and CEO of IMEC.

"This relationship with IMEC will enable Taiyo Nippon Sanso to position itself as a leading MOCVD tool maker in the LED compound semiconductor market," said Mike Hara, senior managing director of TNSC.
