Laser Focus World's 2022 Innovator Awards for the laser and optoelectronics industry have been recently announced. Focuslight has won silver and bronze awards for its DLight S Series Semiconductor Wafer Annealing System and AuSn Pre-Deposited AlN Ceramic Submounts.
Focuslight's DLight S Series Semiconductor Wafer Annealing System
The system combines multiple core technologies for photon generation and photon control to generate an extremely narrow (70 μm) line laser beam with an aspect ratio of 160:1, providing a continuous energy output of up to 1800W / mm². The system can be used in the key pre-processes of logic chip manufacturing with 28nm technology node and below for dynamic surface annealing (DSA), laser spike annealing (LSA) and other processes. Such processes heat the wafer surface atomic layer to more than 1000 ° C in less than 1 millisecond and then let it cool rapidly to effectively reduce wafer electrode defects in the process and improve product performance and production yield.

Focuslight's AuSn Pre-Deposited AlN Ceramic Submounts
AuSn thin film is an essential technology to ensure the long-term reliability of optoelectronic devices. Compared to traditional materials such as Indium, SnPb, SnBi, etc., AuSn-bonded devices have superior performance in durability, oxidation resistance and thermal fatigue resistance. Focuslight pioneers in the pre-deposited AuSn thin film and AuSn eutectic bonding technologies with more than 10 years of technological investment. By using physical vapor deposition technology, the thickness of AuSn is less than 10μm with a tolerance of +/-1μm, and thickness uniformity can reach 3%, which is critical for increasing the uniformity of the bonding interface, reducing the void rate of the bonding interface, and increasing the output power of device finally.
