Things are finally getting back to normal

Quantum Design UK and Ireland staff members are in the office on a rota schedule. We are using the offices to successfully and safely keep up with our deliveries and deal with customer enquiries. We are also getting out and about more often and have a number of upcoming in-person events where we can talk to you about your applications and requirements. And we can still have ‘face-to-face’ meetings via Microsoft Teams – just get in touch, set up a time and we’ll send you a link. It couldn’t be simpler and works well for our customers and suppliers. Please see our list of contacts here.

Featured Webinar

OCCA Webinar: Spectroscopic Ellipsometry for Thin Film Characterisation

Jeremy Vanderslice from J A Woollam will present this webinar hosted by the Oil & Colour Chemists’ Association (OCCA) as part of their weekly webinar series.

Spectroscopic ellipsometry is used to measure nanometer-scale layers used in microelectronics, data storage, flat panel displays and many other thin-film applications. Ellipsometers inherently detect the change in polarisation that occurs as light reflects or transmits from a material structure.
