Photometry & Colorimetry
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.
What can be achieved with a flame photometer has been redefined by BWB Technologies. With unrivalled accuracy, low cost and ease of use the BWB flame photometer is not only the best flame photometer available but is the first real alternative to AAS (atomic absorption spectrometry) and ICP (induced coupling plasma) for measuring Lithium Li, Sodium Na, Potassium K, Calcium Ca & Barium Ba.
BWB Technologies are an American owned, UK company focused on the design, manufacture and sales of award winning flame photometers. Drawing on an Anglo-American team of leading industry specialists we strive to create high quality, cost effective products that redefine what is achievable with a low temperature flame. From a manufacturing plant in Newbury, England, BWB Technologies have introduced a series of flame photometer products, and accessories, which exceed existing expectations in terms of specification, usability, accuracy, reporting, build quality and value for money.
BWB Technologies are the only flame photometer manufacturer to have dedicated sales and technical support offices in Europe, The America’s and the Middle East. We offer an unsurpassed level of support with a 24/7 support service and real people answering customer calls.
We were not content to build an instrument that was just better than the other flame photometers – the BWB flame photometer is a cost effective, accurate and reliable alternative to other technologies such as Inductively Coupled Plasma, ICP and Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometers (AAS). Now 80% of our customers already own an AAS or ICP, but choose to measure Lithium, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Barium with their BWB flame photometer rather than the more expensive and complex AAS or ICP.
A BWB flame photometer is an important and necessary instrument in your laboratory and we pride ourselves on first class customer support. Our telephone service is open 24/7 and you can always speak to a REAL person! Normally we can answer all questions at the first contact, but if we need to call you back we will do so within 24 hours!

Materials Science Applications:
Optimizing functional properties if new surfaces and products:
Finding out in what way the structure of a material influences its properties and behaviour is the aim of materials science. High-resolution analyses of surfaces play an important role in determining relevant parameters like roughness, relection, tribological properties or the surface quality.
NanoFocus measurement systems guarantee analyses conform to international standards – for different measurement task and on all materials. Defined specifications are met and processes optimized. This means that costs are reduced while development times are shortened.
Non-contact 3D surface analyses independent of materials:
NanoFocus measurement systems enable the fast and reliable 3D surface analysis of nearly all materials – from metal, glass, ceramics, semi-conductors, polymers to organic materials. The confocal technology enables determining reliable measurement data independent of the degree of reflection of a surface. The optical method of the NanoFocus-technologies µsurf, µscan and µsprint also enables the non-destructive measurements of sensible surfaces at different stages of production and processing. The measurements of coated surfaces and the determination of layer thickness are also possible.
A previous sample preparation is not necessary. Real 3D data is available after only a few seconds which allows a qualitative as well as a quantitative evaluation of the surface. For the determination of relevant parameters NanoFocus offers comprehensive and powerful software solutions for the analysis of measurement data.
Examples of application:
NanoFocus measurement systems have proven themselves in many areas of materials science due their flexibility. Within only a few seconds they deliver exact and repeatable 3D measurement data of nearly all surfaces. That is why the NanoFocus-technology is ideal for user who wish to analyze different materials.

Light is what nestles deeply into the molecules that make up matter, and makes it possible for matter to be what it is. Although its roots extend deeply into the origins of the world we live in, there’s still much that we don’t know about light. The knowledge that we gain in our quest for understanding will undoubtedly reveal, little by little, the “landscape” of our world in the most quintessential meaning of the word. In our pursuit of light, we at Hamamatsu Photonics are building a foothold for exploring what is still unknown to mankind, and for creating new industries for the future.
In our Industrial Development Laboratory, built in 2008, we carry out research in such areas as power generation and material modification using light energy.
Hamamatsu’s joint research successfully forms a multi-layered polycrystalline ceramic surface through laser shock compression technology.
Hamamatsu, Japan July 17, 2015 The Graduate School for the Creation of New Photonics Industries, an academic institution affiliated with Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., has announced the discovery of a new technique to reform the surface of ceramic materials with laser-shock compression technology, a result which may contribute to the development of new materials. By irradiating the surface of zirconia (yttria-stabilized zirconia) with a high-intensity short-pulse laser, a multi-layered polycrystalline structure was formed on the material with a penetration depth of 130 microns.
