Company will showcase innovative ceramic materials used in the manufacturing of LEDs
Morgan Technical Ceramics (MTC) announces that it will be showcasing a variety of ceramics used in manufacturing LEDs at the Phosphor Global Summit, which takes place March 18-20, 2013 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel. On display will be ceramics used for epitaxial processing and phosphor treatment, including chemical vapor deposition (CVD) silicon carbide, high purity alumina, and Pythagoras materials.
Morgan Technical Ceramics Pythagoras or Mullite is a special alumina silicate material offering high temperature and thermal shock resistance. Used in the furnaces for Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) crystal boule production, Mullite tubes can be made up to 12 inches in diameter and 9 feet long. With thermal shock resistance, chemical and physical durability, as well as a low, stable thermal expansion coefficient, Pythagoras can also be precision engineered into a wide range of shapes and complicated ceramic components. The GaAs boules are processed further into substrates for the LED industry.
Also on display is CVD silicon carbide, which is available in ultra-pure and low resistivity forms, both are extremely durable and able to withstand extremely hostile conditions. CVD silicon carbide can be used in very thin, lightweight sections to improve processing performance. It has an excellent combination of properties for use in wafer processing, heating elements and chamber linings for clean environments.
Ultra-pure, the material features unparalleled wear and corrosion resistance, outstanding thermal conductivity, excellent thermal shock resistance and low thermal expansion.
