Thin film thickness inspection by hyperspectral imaging

Thickness is a crucial quality parameter in thin films and coatings. The thickness and homogeneity strongly affect the film’s functionality and they need accurate monitoring. X-ray techniques and optical spectroscopy are in wide use for this purpose both in tabletop and in-line inspection systems. However, only point sensors are currently employed and, for in-line applications, […]
