AIXTRON becomes first foreign guest member of the China SSL Alliance


AIXTRON received this accolade because of its expertise in the field: not only for its outstanding MOCVD technology but also for its long time efforts in the Solid State Lighting (SSL) business.

Wu Ling, Director of the China Solid State Lighting Alliance (CSA) is pleased to announce that AIXTRON is now officially a guest member - the first foreign guest member from industry to be selected as such. AIXTRON received this accolade because of its expertise in the field: not only for its outstanding MOCVD technology but also for its long time efforts in the Solid State Lighting (SSL) business.

The objective of the Alliance is the development and support of the Chinese Solid State Lighting Industry. The CSA was founded on October 12th, 2004, and its membership numbers over 40 leading Chinese SSL companies and research institutes.

The main target of the CSA is to promote the technological advancement and industrialization of SSL. This is done through resource networking, technology innovation, practical operation and collaborative development. The Alliance is committed to making full use of current resources to establish an information technology database and a technology service platform for the industry. It is also encouraging the 'win-win' approach that will come from mutual and regional cooperation between upstream and downstream manufacturers of the industry production chain. The CSA is also working to establish an international cooperation network for integrating resources.

The Alliance intends to provide a strategic analysis of the SSL market with reference to China’s governmental industrial policies. Further, it will support the industry’s responsibility to meet international business standards together with the members’ individual development and thereby improve China’s international competitiveness in the SSL industry.

AIXTRON has been active in the China Solid State Lighting Alliance for many years. The new membership is in recognition of the long time successful cooperation between the Chinese LED industry and AIXTRON.

Prof. Dr. Michael Heuken, AIXTRON Vice President Research and Development, comments: “I am confident that being a member of the China Solid State Lighting Alliance will further strengthen AIXTRON’s position in China. Our ongoing local research, development and educational effort have been a vital part of our business success story in China. AIXTRON is closely linked with the Chinese academic community being active in co-organizing conferences and other scientific forums. Thanks to our cooperation in technical developments such as process technology, customer success is assured and we will continue to deliver state-of-the-art equipment to the leading Chinese LED companies and research institutes."
