The resistivity is one of the most important electrical parameters of a material. It is a key parameter for the performance of semiconductor devices as e.g. solar cells and depends on the doping density of the material. Hence, it is necessary to measure the resistivity with a high accuracy and a high resolution, in order to detect inhomogeneity in the doping density.
With MDPmap and MDPingot it is possible to measure the resistivity of wafers or bricks with a high accuracy and a resolution of 1 mm via eddy current measurements. The Eddy current sensor setup has a very good long-term stability, due to a distance correlated internal calibration matrix. Hence, with every resistivity map a geometry map of the surface flatness is measured. The resistivity can be measured simultaneously with the minority carrier lifetime and photoconductivity maps. In case of wafer measurements, the thickness of the sample has to be given by the user.
Step width ≥ 1mm
Edge exclusion 12 mm
Resistivity wafer thickness range 150 ...250 µm
Resistivity range can be specified
Default setting: 0.5 to 5 Ohm cm
Accuracy: < 5 %
Repeatability: < 1 % (range of 0.5 until 3 Ohm cm)
It is possible to map the sheet resistance of the emitter, in order to investigate the homogeneity of the emitter diffusion. The resistivity of the base has to be given by the user.
Sheet resistance measurement with range 0.1-200 Ohm/sq
Accuracy at standard sample size,
0.1 - 10 Ohm/sq: < 3 % accuracy
10 - 100 Ohm/sq: < 4 % accuracy
100 – 200 Ohm/sq: < 5 % accuracy
Figure 1 to 3 show examples of resistivity maps measured on mc-Si wafers and bricks.
Freiberg Instruments is currently improving sheet resistance measurements and adapting its devices for measurements of thin layers and stacks of wide-bandgap materials.
