RIBER Receives Order for MBE 32 Research System from EPIR Inc.

RIBER, the global leader in Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) equipment, announced on May 14, 2024, that it has received an order for a MBE 32 research system from EPIR Inc., a privately-owned high-tech company based in Bolingbrook, Illinois, USA. This marks the second MBE 32 MCT machine ordered by EPIR Inc., just two months after RIBER delivered the first system.

Why this matters: The development of advanced HgCdTe semiconductors has significant implications for the defense sector, enabling the creation of high-performance infrared detection and imaging devices. This technology can potentially enhance national security and defense capabilities, making it a crucial area ofresearch.

EPIR Inc. specializes in developing advanced HgCdTe (mercury cadmium telluride - MCT) semiconductors for high-performance infrared detection and imaging devices, primarily in the defense sector. The company has been involved in HgCdTe material research since 1997 and has developed a customized material growth technology using RIBER's MBE 32 MCT machines.

The MBE 32 range has been in existence for 40 years, with several hundred systems installed worldwide. RIBER's MBE 32 excels in the epitaxial growth of mercury-containing compounds, one of the most complex challenges in MBE thin-film deposition. EPIR Inc.'s decision to acquire a second MBE 32 MCT system is a significant endorsement of the quality and reliability of this machine.

RIBER is a BPI France-approved innovative company listed on the Euronext Growth Paris market (ISIN: FR0000075954). As the global market leader for MBE equipment, RIBER designs and produces equipment for the semiconductor industry and provides scientific and technical support to its clients. EPIR Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sivananthan Laboratories Inc.

The order for the MBE 32 research system will be delivered in 2025. This acquisition will further strengthen EPIR Inc.'s capacity for developing and producing advanced HgCdTe semiconductors, enabling the company to continue its groundbreaking work in the field of infrared detection and imaging technology.
