What does EBIC mean or stand for ?

EBIC is a technique that is used to check semi conductor samples for faults and material defects.EBIC works by focusing a tiny beam of electron particles onto the surface of the semiconductor device for testing.It works on the same principles of the electron microscope.

In simple words,if there is a crack or break in the material then the current caused by the electron beam will not flow,and if the material is without flaws,then the current will pass undeterred.
