User Friendly Operations

Three user modes for research, fab and quality control are designed to provide user friendly operations.

  • The research mode mainly uses drag and drop function from the left side of the treeview to the right side of the modelling area.
  • The fab mode provides a fully automatic operating environment based on automatic, push button recipes that fully automate the analysis sequence: acquisition + modelling + mapping + results.
  • The quality control mode, which is the new Auto Soft software package, is designed to provide easy operations of ellipsometric analysis.

Simple Automatic Recipes

A recipe fully automates data acquisition+modeling+mapping+results, which facilitates routine thin film analysis.

The design of the software allows the user to define several acquisition routines and models in a single recipe as well as several groups of points in a single grid.

  • Recipe procedure.
  • Fitting procedure.
  • Acceptance criteria for integrated quality control.
  • Conveniently access to recipe steps and original files for processing / reprocessing.
  • Statistical analysis
  • Standardized visualization of mapping results on semiconductor wafer and glass panels
  • Autofocus and pattern recognition functions.
  • Advanced communication protocols (RS232, TCP/IP)

New AutoSoft

The new Auto Soft software package is used to control the new Auto SE, a fully automatic ellipsometer for quality control of thin films.
The comprehensive user interface based on the use of icons and the easy navigation make users comfortable with ellipsometric analysis. As the software is multilanguage it is simple to operate for everyone.
Automated recipes fully automate the thin film analysis with a single push button operation. The sample analysis takes only a few seconds and provides a complete analysis report describing the thin film structure under test.

The 3 steps for a thin film analysis are:

  1. Load Sample            
  2. Run Measurement 
  3. Results Display
