John Peeler - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Since joining Veeco in 2007, Mr. Peeler has led the transformation of Veeco into a high growth, technology leader in LEDs, Advanced Packaging, MEMS and Data Storage Process Equipment markets. Through his strategic focus and operational excellence initiatives, Veeco’s market share, customer satisfaction and shareholder value have grown dramatically.

Mr. Peeler spent his early career in engineering, marketing and product development in the communications test equipment industry. He became President and CEO of TTC in 1992 where he built the company into a global communications test equipment leader. Through organic development and a series of acquisitions, he evolved the company to become Acterna Inc. which became the largest global provider of field service communications test products. Acterna was acquired by JDSU in 2005 and became its largest and most profitable business.

Mr. Peeler earned a BS and MSE in Electrical Engineering and graduated with high distinction from the University of Virginia.

GaN MOCVDTurboDisc EPIK 700 GaN MOCVD System for LED Production Combines Best-in-Class Yields and Highest Productivity to Lower LED Manufacturing Costs. Veeco’s award-winning EPIK® 700 MOCVD system is the LED industry’s highest productivity MOCVD system that reduces cost per wafer by up to 20 percent compared to previous generations. Available in one-and two-reactor configurations, EPIK 700 features breakthrough technologies, including the new IsoFlange™ center injection flow and TruHeat™ wafer coil that provide homogeneous laminar flow and uniform temperature profile across the entire wafer carrier. These technological innovations produce wavelength uniformity to drive higher yields in a tighter bin. EPIK 700 offers a 2.5x throughput advantage over other systems due to its large reactor size.
Precision SurfacePrecision Surface Processing - WaferEtch. An Innovative Solution for Wafer Processing, featuring TSV Reveal. Precision Surface Processing's single wafer wet etch technology enables uniform selective etching on multiple process levels, free of cross-contamination. Etch uniformity better than 1% is routine. Whether for advanced packaging or FEOL/BEOL wet etches, WaterEtch™ systems accomplish the highest yield process at the lowest manufacturing cost. When etch structures or films are needed in the active, backside, and/or bevel areas, WaferEtch systems are a proven technical solution.
GEN10 MBE SystemThe GEN10™ MBE System is the most economical, flexible cluster tool system in a proven platform, allowing for up to three configurable, material-specific growth modules. This enables high system utilization, allowing multiple researchers to use the system at the same time and perform unattended growths and calibrations. This, combined with Veeco components technology, are key factors in why the MBE community is choosing the GEN10™ MBE System, no matter what the application.
SPECTOR-HT Ion Beam Sputtering SystemSPECTOR-HT Ion Beam Sputtering System for Optical Coating. Ion Beam Optical Films at Physical Vapor Deposition Rates. Produce the highest quality optical thin films with improved levels of productivity and throughput with the award-winning SPECTOR-HT™ Advanced Ion Beam Sputtering System. Building on the proven performance of our SPECTOR® family of ion beam systems, the SPECTOR-HT system offers excellent layer thickness control, enhanced process stability and the lowest published optical losses in the industry.
Precision Gas Mixing SystemPrecision Gas Mixing System. Improves Gas Mixture Concentration for Higher Production Yields. Veeco’s Precision Gas Mixing System generates gas mixtures with improved concentration control for tighter process control and higher yield. Active control of mixture concentration compensates for changes or drifts in upstream concentration. For example: out of a 1 percent dopant premix, the Piezocon Precision Gas Mixing System can generate a 50ppm dopant gas mixture with a ± 0.5ppm or better concentration control, tank to tank and over the shelf life of the tank.
NEXUS IBD Ion Beam Deposition SystemNEXUS IBD Ion Beam Deposition System. Ideal for Hard Bias, Lead, Insulation Layer and Sensor Stack Deposition. Data storage manufacturers can dramatically increase yield of 80Gb/in2 sensors, as well as meet the demands of future TFMH device fabrication with Veeco's third-generation NEXUS® Ion Beam Deposition (IBD) System.
