The Avantes engineering team is working on the development of a new thin film trade show demo we will be unveiling at Semi Con West. While we can't show you the demo itself yet, we have been doing some testing. These very successful tests resulted in collecting very exciting spectra that we can't wait until Semi Con West to share.
This month we showcase transmission spectra collected from a 7 cm long glass slide substrate with a transparent film of linearly increasing thickness. Measurements were taken at pre-determined intervals to simulate in situ monitoring of the deposition process.
Transmission was measured at 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50cm from the starting edge, where the starting and ending thicknesses are unknown. As thickness increased, so too did the number of interference patterns peaks. These interference peaks correlate with the interference patterns that are used to determine film thickness.
