Our advanced 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM) enable the discovery process that helps you advance innovation in your area of research or engineering. XRM can be used for many applications in a number of fields, including materials science, life sciences, natural resources and the electronics industry. The ability to visualize submicron features of your sample as small as 50 nm in size in native full volume 3D form, non-destructively, and to perform automated correlation of 2D images and complex data will enhance and possibly transform your critical imaging and data analysis tasks.
An energetic, young industry upstart launched in 2009, Colnatec has established new industry standards in the design, development, and manufacturing of innovative, high-performance sensors and electronic instrumentation used in multiple, diverse areas:
Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD)
Solar cell manufacturing (CIGS)
Mobile display (OLED)
Optical Coatings (PVD)
Food packaging (R2R)
High speed electrical devices (MBE)
Architectural glass (In-Line)
Semiconductor wafer processing (CVD).
Through the use of patented and patent-pending technologies, researchers, manufacturers, and system-builders are able to increase the conversion efficiency of photovoltaic films, reduce production and run times and costs, and improve overall performance; it’s ultimately about achieving higher yield. Holder of numerous patents Colnatec received the Department of Energy SBIR Phase I and II awardsfor a self-cleaning process control sensor to be used in manufacturing CIGS solar cells. This sensor extends crystal life indefinitely and enables solar cell manufacturers to achieve cell and module efficiencies well beyond the status quo. Colnatec is also one of about eight winners of the Arizona Commerce Authority Innovation Challenge Grant Program for promoting innovation in the technology sector.

Freiberg Instruments is now one of the world’s fastest growing, young and dynamic analytical instrumentation companies with products covering a broad spectrum of applications in fields/industries like Semiconductor, Microelectronics, Photovoltaic, Dosimetry, Medical Research, Luminescence Dating, X-ray diffraction, Material Research and Electron Spin Resonance.
Established in 2005 as an university spin off from TU Bergakademie – The University of Resources, Freiberg Instruments devoted the first few years to develop and test a whole family of fast, nondestructive, electrical characterization tools under production conditions, measuring parameters like minority carrier lifetime, photoconductivity and resistivity.
MDP Microwave-Detected Photoconductivity:
The advanced method MDP is well suited for both, defect investigation by e.g. injection dependent minority carrier lifetime measurements, as well as mapping of wafers or even ingots for inline metrology. MDP has a variety of advantages in sensitivity, speed and resolution.
MD-PICTS is a modification of MDP, where temperature dependent measurements of the defect part of the transient are accomplished. This allows to do a spatial resolved defect characterization.
