Veeco is a global capital equipment supply company, based in the United States, that designs and builds processing systems used in the manufacture of high-tech precision electronics devices including semiconductors, opticals, MMS, display technologies and power devices. These devices are used for LED lighting, communication networks, data storage, advanced computing and mobile devices, and in emerging applications such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and 5G. Veeco's treatment system capabilities include laser, photosynthesis, ionbeam, organic mineral steam deposition chemical (MOCVD), wet chip processing, molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), atomic layer deposition (ALD), physical vapor deposition (PVD), dicing and windpipe, gas and steam delivery. Veeco was merged in 1945 by two scientists, Frank Rybel and The Nürkin, who created the helium leak detector. The company's name "Fico" stood for vacuum electronic equipment company. In the 1960s, the original Fico was merged with Lambda, an energy supply manufacturer, and in the late 1980s, it was purchased by The British Company Unitich.
