Coating & Thin-film Analysis

Coating provides functional or decorative features to change substrate surface properties of materials such as corrosion resistance, reflectance, adhesion and more. The technique of coating materials and the coating process is developing significantly in order to achieve various fantastic features. Raman spectroscopy has been found to be a new ideal solution in addition to traditional XRD in this field for structural characterization, which shows great advantages for inorganic and organic materials and can be deployed not only in online process monitoring but also on offline characterization.

Application Notes

Raman spectroscopy is a nondestructive and highly versatile technique for analysis of chemicals, both organic and inorganic. It is used in industry, bioscience, medical diagnosis, forensics, and many other areas.

UV-VIS-NIR modular spectrometers have been used to measure thin films on surfaces for many years. For example, in measuring the reflectance (and transmittance) off the surface of a Silicon wafer, we can measure the constructive and destructive interference and calculate the thickness of the films down to tens of Angstroms (up to several layers).
