The spectroscopic reflectometry systems

The NanoCalc Series are part of the mikropack product line of thin film metrology systems. The NanoCalc systems are versatile and configurable thin film measurement systems utilising spectroscopic reflectometry to accurately determine optical and non-optical thin film thicknesses for consumer, semiconductor, medical and industrial applications in a wide range of fields. NanoCalc system measures anti-reflective coatings, anti-scratch coatings and rough layers on substrates such as steel, aluminum, brass, copper, ceramics and plastics.

The NanoCalc Thin Film Reflectometry System allows you to analyze the thickness of optical layers from 1 nm to 250 µm. You can observe a single thickness with a resolution of 0.1 nm and analyze single-layer or multilayer films in less than one second

  • Resolution to 0.1 nm
  • Can measure up to 10 layer stacks
  • Angle of incidence: 90°
  • In-situ & on-line thickness measurements
  • Refractive index measurement
  • sophisticated algorithms for defect and roughness measurements
  • large database to ensure accuracy over a broad range of materials
  • adaptors for complex geometries and accessories for thickness mapping
