Dutch researches demonstrate TeraSpike at optically excited semiconductors

One of the most important applications of the TeraSpike probe lies in the field of wafer analysis. So far, it has been mainly used to probe wafer material properties such as sheet resistance or charge carrier mobility under normal ambient conditions. Now a team of researchers from the Dutch institutes DIFFER and Eindhoven University of Technology succeeded in demonstrating the use of the TeraSpike near-field probe for measurements of wafer conductivity under short pulse optical excitation. …
