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.

Typically our clients are working in research or manufacturing of advanced semiconductor materials for integrated circuits or optoelectronic devices. Recently photovoltaic solar energy conversion and thermoelectric materials have become an important part of our activities.
Our experience and proven solutions include the measurement of majority carrier properties (such as resistivity, carrier concentration, mobility, effective mass, trapping) and minority carrier properties (such as minority carrier lifetime, diffusion length, trapping), in R&D or production environments. We also include associated measurements of insulating (dielectric) and metal thin film properties and film thickness and the interface characteristics between these thin films and the semiconductor.
When we use the term “semiconductor” today we mean it in the broadest sense. It can be the elemental materials silicon germanium etc, in single crystal or polycrystalline wafers or in polycrystalline or amorphous thin film form but it can also mean compound semiconductors or alloys of compounds in crystal wafers or polycrystalline thin films and more recently also polymer and organic thin films.
The methods we apply to these problems cover a wide range of technologies ( such as; optical, electronic, magnetic, cryogenic, acoustic, electro-chemical, vacuum etc) supplied by a number of partner companies around the world.
SemiMetrics find the solution first by working with the client, and then find the partners needed to supply the required parts to build the solution. We then offer proven solutions from our portfolio of projects.
Our customers appreciate our expert knowledge and solution expertise in the value chain of the UV measurement. Our range extends from the production of SiC photodiode wafers, SiC photodiodes and SiC hybrids (TOCONs) to digital and analog measuring probes, SiC spectrometer, reference radiometer and PTB-certified calibration standards.
We are an interdisciplinary team of scientists, engineers and production, quality & logistics professionals. Together we have over 100 years of experience in the field of development, production and calibration of UV measuring components.
