Our goal is to reduce waste and make our processes more efficient. We take used Gallium Arsenide and recycle it into mechanical-test grade wafers for all your calibration needs. As GaAs wafer usage continues to rise, GaAs reclaim becomes an even more crucial cost-saving tool that allows your company to decrease prime wafer purchases.
Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) is one of the most important compound semiconductor materials globally, with wide applications in wireless, optoelectronics, and solar cells. As a cost-savings measure, companies are forced to re-use substrates when feasible.
Most of the major GaAs companies in the United States have reclaimed 4” and 6” GaAs wafers for many years. Diameters of 2”, 3”, 4”, 5”, and 6” wafers can be processed and re-polished. Process Monitor wafers or production-rejects can be reclaimed two to three times and used as test grade material. Wafers with layers consisting of epitaxy, photoresist, metal coating, dielectrics, etc., can be reclaimed two to three times as well.
The steps for the reclaim flow for wafers are as follows:
