System Information

General Description

The Filmetrics is used to measure the thickness and optical constants (n and k) of transparent and semi-transparent thin film such as oxides, nitrides, resists, polyimides, polysilicon. The Filmetrics measures film characteristics by reflecting light and then analyzing this light over a range of wavelengths.


Measured films should be optically smooth. Very rough films and opaque films can not be measured.
