Film Thickness

How Bruker delivers accurate transparent film metrology to ensure proper function of thin films in many industrial applications

Thin films or transparent overcoats are applied in many products for protective or many functional reasons. For example, they are used in electronic packaging, photovoltaics or optical filtering. In many cases, it is critical for product quality and performance to exactly know and control the thickness down to the nanometer level.

Bruker offers fast, contact stylus metrology systems for thin films with utmost accuracy.
They enable the measurement of nanometer-thick films with less than 5 angstrom repeatability. For thicker transparent films, our non-contact 3D optical microscopes allow measuring films of 1-micron thickness up to 400-micron thickness.
