  • Epitaxy Grade 1 – Simple proof of concept epitaxial services, not to extend more than 10 hours for the entire project.
  • Epitaxy Grade 2 – A more complex series of runs such as a series of samples with changes in parameters. This process will involve constant communication between the core team and the customer.
  • Epitaxy Grade 3 – Complete device growth where the device could be solar cells, lasers, transistors, and detectors. This service involves a significant level of planning and interaction between the core team and the customer.
  • Please contact the INML for more details on our pricing structure.
