Franz Xaver has 25 years hands on experience in the vacuum and thin film coating industries. His first role was as a Systems Engineer responsible for mechanical and electrical assembly of manufacturing systems for optical data storage applications. Since that time he has gone on to work in a number business management roles, leading projects and delivering equipment to customers in the semiconductor industry. In 2017 he completed his MBA studies before joining Evatec where he is now Senior Product Marketing Manager for Business Unit Optoelectronics.
A lot has changed since Evatec first presented potential production solutions for the upcoming Micro LED technology two years ago. With a much greater understanding of the practical manufacturing challenges we are just a short step away from seeing the first mass production applications of micro LED displays. Working together with technology leaders has helped us optimize new approaches in thin film production technology. Solutions will be presented offering increased automation with less human intervention. Full substrate tracking, a stable process environment and improved sputter and evaporation process performance are all part of the essential recipe for success. Performance is the key to make micro LED competitive against the current solutions mostly covered by OLED and mini LED.
