Ellipsometry: Advanced Modeling Techniques

These trainings are held in France or at your location and are conducted in French or English.


  • Reference: ELL2
  • Dates:
    • June 8-10, 2020
    • November 23-25, 2020
  • Who should attend: Advanced users. A level of knowledge equivalent to Level ELL1 is required
  • Duration: 3 days (From 9:00 am to 5:30 pm)


This training course targets advanced users, with a level of knowledge equivalent to ELL1. Attendees should have at least some ellipsometry experience and skill with DeltaPsi2 software.

  • Provides a good practice of modeling methods used for the characterization of complex structures such as: unknown materials, ultra thin films, anisotropic samples, limited backside reflection parameterization, etc. Customers are invited to bring samples.



Day 1

Practical Session of Non-ideal Samples: Measurements and Modeling

  • Review of theory
  • Analysis of gradient layer
  • Analysis of thick films >2μm
  • Non-uniform thicknesses
  • Study of depolarizing sample

Day 2

Practical Session of Non-ideal Samples

  • Analysis of combined ellipsometric and transmission data for thin metallic films sample
  • Anisotropy: learn how to identify the axis orientation to run appropriate measurements for modeling  


Day 3

Practice session - Customer samples

Our trainers are experts in each technique. They will provide trainings advice and guidance to make the most of your HORIBA Scientific instrument. You will gain confidence and experience in the analysis of your samples.

Certificates are given to every attendee for every course.
