Compound semiconductors are all around us. III-V, II-VI, Nitrides, SiGe and others light up our mobile phones and enable their ultra high frequencies communication; they power satellites and generate clean electricity; they send and detect the packets of light that makes the Internet work; and they extract data off DVDs and Blu-ray discs, they precisely cut steel or make fine surgery.
Riber is the world's leading provider of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) equipment, the most versatile and precise tool to deposit precise amounts of material onto substrates and which are used to design and create the newest semiconductor structures and manufacture many of these devices. These can be used to make incredibly inexpensive thin-film solar cells, create the displays of tomorrow’s organic LED TVs, and help to produce ultra-small silicon transistors that will lead to faster, more powerful data treatments.
To operate successfully in all these markets, Riber is organized into two divisions: MBE systems and service, cells and accessories. The MBE portfolio ranges from competitively priced highly capable research reactors used by the leading research centers all around the world to far larger production machines which are operating in many of the world's leading compound semiconductor foundries with the lowest cost of ownership. Riber’s cells and sources deliver an incredibly wide range of high-quality products, and the service division provides exceptional technical support, advice, equipment upgrades, and reactor maintenance to MBE users of every reactor made by Riber and VG Semicon. To ensure a fast response to customers all around the world, Riber provides support from its headquarters in France and additional offices in the US and Asia.
