AIXTRON has a total of three cutting-edge research and development laboratories in Herzogenrath (Germany), Cambridge (UK), and Sunnyvale (US). All are equipped with the latest systems for developing new processes, materials, and production methods. Close collaboration with our international sales and service branch offices ensures that we pursue customer-oriented product development.
About 250 specialized scientists and engineers perform research at AIXTRON every day as they work on tomorrow’s technology trends. Spurred on by the concept of transforming ideas into marketable products, we continue to perfect existing products and, with our research partners, we push ahead to develop innovative materials.
Around the world, we work with outstanding universities, research centers and industry partners to carry out challenging projects at the domestic and international levels. Through our intensive collaboration with well-known scientists, we are coming up with new results in the field of nanotechnology, and continue to conduct research on new materials and technologies.
