k-Space Ships a Custom Thin-Film Thickness Metrology System

DEXTER, Mich. - Michimich -- k-Space Associates, Inc. is excited to share that they shipped a custom metrology system that measures thin-film thickness for vertically loaded samples. k-Space developed this tool in response to a customer inquiry — the customer needed inline metrology to measure the film thickness of their 2-sided coatings that would also integrate with their manufacturing execution system (MES).

The customer wanted the output of the inline measurement system to feed into their MES for real-time monitoring and quality control. k-Space designed a system that takes spectral transmission measurements and feeds them into their proprietary thin-film modeling and fitting software to perform the desired film-stack measurement calculations. The system provides real-time measurement results and stores the data in k-Space proprietary-format files, .txt files, and .sql files for database storage and manipulation.
