Ellipsometry Application Notes

Spectroscopic ellipsometers are the perfect tools for measuring thin film thickness and optical constants (n and k) with high accuracy for single and multiple layer thin film structures. Thickness determinations range from a few angstroms to tens of microns. Characterization of advanced material properties are also possible such as: anisotropic structures, graded and non-uniform layers, alloy composition.
