This system will support Philips Innovation Services’ capabilities in a broad range of thin film device applications, including MEMS, sensors, nano-electronics and others.

Christ van Hout, Strategic Purchasing CAPEX at Philips Innovation Services, commented, “Veeco was determined from the beginning to find the right solution for our equipment needs.
