EBIC is an analysis technique used primarily in the SEM in semiconductor and LED research. EBIC allows for buried junctions and defects to easily be imaged and analyzed, as well as the ability to examine minority carrier properties.
EBIC and cathodoluminescence depend on electron-hole pairs creation in the sample when the electron beam interacts with it.
