BluGlass (BLG) has commissioned the BLG-500, the largest remote plasma chemical vapour deposition (RPCVD) manufacturing platform to date.

The commercial-scale RPCVD system has been successfully retrofitted onto a modern generation manufacturing platform called the AIXTRON 2800 G4.

This platform is capable of six-by-six-inch wafer deposition or 42-by-two-inch wafers, which is several times the capacity of the previous largest RPCVD system, the BLG-300.

“The 500 is not an incremental next generation of our RPCVD platform, it is instead a radically re-engineered design to deliver ultra-precision uniformity and deposition quality at commercial scale,” Managing Director Giles Bourne said.

This breakthrough semiconductor technology is being commercialised for the global laser diode, LED and microLED industries. BluGlass’ patented hardware and processes offers manufacturers unique performance advantages due to RPCVD’s low temperature and hydrogen growth conditions.

“The BLG500 is the culmination of an enormous two-year design and build project to transform our unique research and development (R&D) scale technology to one with commercial manufacturing capability,” Giles stated.

BluGlass is now undertaking performance testing and optimisation of the new system before BLG-500 can start to contribute to the product development.

Company shares are up 29.6 per cent and are trading for 5.7 cents each at 1:51 pm AEST.
