Solving the problems of oxidation in the semiconductor industry.
Comptek is solving a vital semiconductor problem, namely oxidation. Compound semiconductor materials are all around us – in LEDs, lasers, photovoltaic devices and we can find them in our mobile phones in different forms, such as IR sensors and RF amplifiers. Despite the potential of these materials, they tend to oxidize very quickly during the manufacturing process, leading to a much lower performance level than what could be achieved. Comptek tackles this problem with a novel process, discovered and patented by the founders, giving the industry a new tool to push the efficiency of compound semiconductor devices to the next level.
