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:
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.
