Abstract
An overview is given on recent developments at Fraunhofer ISE in the field of infrared carrier lifetime imaging. A combination of short acquisition times with high spatial resolution and high dynamic range under (quasi-)steady-state conditions gives the technique a high potential for the application in material and process characterization. Measuring in the emission mode provides access to the temperature dependence of lifetime and thus spatially resolved temperature dependent lifetime spectroscopy. Furthermore, images of injection dependent lifetimes are presented. For the anomalous increase at low injection a modelling description was developed. Assuming carrier trapping as origin of the increase, spatially resolved trap parameter analysis is possible. Finally, a new approach to suppress the anomalous increase by the application of subbandgap light is demonstrated.
