Eastern Applied Research, Lockport NY, USA
6614 Lincoln Ave., Lockport, NY 14094, USA

In 1991, Eastern Applied Research began as a regional service provider for x-ray fluorescence instruments. Technical associates offered on-site certification, consultation, and repair services with a focus on the East Coast of the United States. Those associates realized that most clients were looking for a single source for XRF Technology service and support. So, Eastern Applied added an in-house standards laboratory for standard re-certification and manufacturing of new XRF standards. They also began offering XRF analyzers for their clients testing needs.

In time, through the organizations dedication to offering efficient response times and competitive pricing (an overall dedication to customer satisfaction) the client list grew and demanded additional technical staff be added to support that demand. Expanding the on-site service personal to include representatives to cover Central and Western United States was the next step in the evolution of this complete service provider. Eastern Applied Research has continued to grow over the years and now provides service and support throughout North America – covering Canada and Mexico with bi-lingual service personal as needed.

Eastern Applied’s core technical staff has a complete working knowledge of a wide range of XRF analyzer models and the field staff receives extensive training on each model to insure a satisfactory experience for the client. Sales of XRF analyzers has expanded from just reconditioned systems (used XRF) to include new analyzers from a leader in XRF technology – Hitachi High-Tech. XRF analyzers from Hitachi High-Tech are known for providing the highest reliability and excellent precision for a large number of application interests.

Applications include:
Thickness Measurements
RoHS Testing
Analytical Laboratory
Process Control
Alloy Analysis
Geological Testing

Freiberg Instruments GmbH, Freiberg, Germany
Delfter Str. 6, D-09599 Freiberg, Germany

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.
