at Freiberg Instruments
The impact of the development of the crystal growth methods on modern technology is often underestimated. We use products manufactured on crystalline surfaces everyday in our electronic devices. New applications for single crystals emerge continuously as older ones are disappearing due to the technological progress.
The growth of single crystal material is a technologically and economically challenging business. The starting materials must be highly purified and contaminations need to be minimized during crystal growth and processing. Continuous measurements of product quality indicators like orientation and homogeneity are a key to economical success.
The production of silicon dominates the market for single crystals. Other semiconductors and metals are produced on much smaller scale. The market share of wide-bandgap semiconductors like gallium nitride and insulators like sapphire is currently increasing. Laser optics are an important application field for crystals like garnets, borates and other transparent oxides. The importance of piezoelectric single crystals like quartz has decreased in the last years, and many applications of these materials do not require single crystals.
Freiberg Instruments offers customized X-ray diffraction solutions for single crystal orientation and quality control.

3D-mapping of crystalline turbine blades made from NI-superalloys
Processing large single crystals for wafer production is a key to success in the semiconductor industry. During sawing and grinding, the control of the orientation ensures a good product quality.
The quality of a crystal is not exactly measurable. However we can compare measurements on several physical properties to standards for clean and ordered crystals. With XRD, the relevant property is called the Rocking Curve of a reflection.
In most cases the crystal orientation measurement is a precondition for other processing or measurement steps. The details and peciliarities of each method are not of interest for the most users; they want a reliable result to decide how to go on with their work. Thus having a clear interface and...
In orientation measurements on large samples, the alingnment of the specimen within the instrument preselects a certain orientation. With respect to the sample main axis, we can define in-plane and out-of-plane components of the crystal orientation. The Omega Scan is capable of determining all...
Components built from NLO materials have to fulfill high quality standards at the crystal surface and within the bulk material. The surface quality measurement can be combined with XRD orientation determination in one machine.

Sorting of quartz blanks for AT, SC, FC, IT cut
In the production of oscillators and filters the cutting of blanks from bars is an essential step for achieving the right cutting angle of the blanks that influences the temperature behavior of the final product.
Rocking curve measurements are sensitive to defects and strain fields within the crystal lattice. Combining this technique with a mapping stage allows to scan a crystal surface and determine faulty areas. In lattice matched thin films, rocking curves can also be used to study layer thickness,...
Our diffractometers are designed for large and heavy single crystals. In particular industrial applications are in the focus of our designs.
Requiring a convenient and fast XRD method for crystal orientation measurements, the industry is the primary application field for the Omega Scan.
