Measurement of thickness / layer thicknes

White light interference

White light from the upper and lower boundary surfaces of thin films is reflected differently. Interference measurement allows for the precise measuring of transparent coatings on films and mono-films. Both, the layer thickness and film thickness can be determined with a special measuring process.

Principle of operation

When white light is reflected from thin layers, this reflection appears colorful like a rainbow. This effect can be observed for example in a thin film of oil on a puddle of water. The light is reflected at both the upper and lower boundary of the part. The superimposed reflections interfere. The interference is related to the layer thickness and can be detected by a spectrometer.

Using this method, mono layers and transparent coatings on film can be measured precisely. By a special measuring procedure, both the layer thickness and the film thickness can be determined accurately on-line.
