Ion Implanter

Ion implantation is a method to impact impurity atoms in form of ions into a base material (doping) or to generate defects in semiconductor material (defect engineering, lifetime engineering). In this way, the material properties of the base material change (usually the electrical properties). The method is primarily used in semiconductor technology. Appropriate equipment for ion implantation are named ion implanters. Ion implantation service is available for partners from industry and can be used for for basic and applied research to modify surface-sensitive properties like adhesion, wear, roughness, hardness, corrosion of metal or other materials.

The ion beam center operates three ion implanters with 500 kV, 200 kV and 40 kV maximum acceleration voltage as well as facilities for plasma immersion ion implantation.
