Environmental Commitment

Submitted by drupaladmin on Thu, 2006-02-09 02:14.

In order to serve customers with the highest level of excellence, AXT is committed to environmental protection and positive corporate citizenship. In 2006, we were certified as meeting the international standards of ISO 14001:2004, an Environmental Management Standard. The certification followed an audit of our Beijing facility and environmental systems, conducted by SGS an ANSI accredited third party auditor.

ISO 14001:2004 is the internationally recognized standard for environmental management systems, providing guidance on how to manage the environmental aspects of an organization's activities, products and services more effectively, while taking into consideration environmental protection, pollution prevention, and socioeconomic needs. The ISO 14001 standard specifies requirements for establishing an environmental policy; determining environmental aspects and impacts of products, activities and services; planning environmental objectives and measurable targets; implementation and operation of programs to meet objectives and targets; checking and corrective action and management review.

VGF Technology

Submitted by drupaladmin on Thu, 2006-02-09 02:05.

Vertical gradient freeze (VGF) technology is a proven technique for growing semiconductors composed of multiple elements that include: gallium, arsenic, indium, and phosphorus. Such semiconductors offer capabilities that exceed those of wafers created on a single crystal silicon substrate. Although AT&T Bell Labs pioneered VGF technology in the early 1980s, the founders of AXT, Inc. were the first to independently commercialize the process and make its benefits available to the market.
