Method of and apparatus for measuring lifetime of carriers in semiconductor sample

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #5760597.

In addition to microwave and excitation light, bias light as well is irradiated upon a surface of a semiconductor sample that is passivated using a solution which contains an electrolyte. Irradiation of the bias light increases the quantity of ionic substances that exist in the solution, largely changes a surface potential of the semiconductor sample, and suppresses surface recombination. This makes it possible to measure the lifetime of carriers which exist within the semiconductor sample at a high accuracy, without influenced by surface recombination.
