First e31 measurement at wafer levelMeasurement principle enables non-destructive measurement of e31,f by measuring d33 on various pad sizes.
e31,f expansion of the TFHSU according to Kanno/MuraltMeasurement principle enables non-destructive measurement of e31,f by measuring d33 on various pad sizes.
aixTNT – through nozzle test systemSpecial system based on the ScanningPES for characterizing thin film print heads.
PSHU KryoTemperature range of our piezo sample holders extended to between -100°C and 600°C.
Introduction of the TFHSU thin film sample holder unitThin film measurement point for temperature-based ferroelectric characterization.
aixDBLI Industrial LineFully automatic DBLI with industrial prober and loader, as well as SECS-GEM for connection to higher-level production control systems.
Introduction of CMA and PTTBTest system for characterizing piezoelectric multilayer actuators with defined preloading and dynamic force profiles.
First double beam laser interferometer (DBLI)The first commercially available double beam laser interferometer enables fast and high-resolution measurement of d33,f on clamped thin films.
4-point bending system (aix4PB)The first commercially available double beam laser interferometer enables fast and high-resolution measurement of d33,f on clamped thin films.
First piezoelectric test system (PES)We developed the first measurement system for characterizing piezoelectric bulk materials, based on the TF Analyzer. It enables simultaneous measurements of polarization and displacement under strong electric fields.
