Company Summary

We realize commercial ion irradiation using modern accelerators. Power semiconductors play a key role in future development of regenerative energy production and energy efficient electric powered mobility. Defect engineering in power devices by high energy ion irradiation improves switching behavior and decreases power loss of diodes, thyristors, IGBT or power MOSFET. Our customers are power semiconductor fabs worldwide.
