By James Blee Subscribe to RSS | December 21st 2011 | Views:

Film thickness measurement is more important than we could ever imagine. In industries or in labs, there might be instances when the thickness or the thinness of a film, down to its last micron can make a lot of difference. Naturally, it has to be very well accurate and the reading can make or break the flow of work in progress. Here are some things that are done in today’s times regarding film thickness measurement.

The use of filmetrics technology is one such method. It usually consists of a machine that can be attached to the computer and then one can start measuring. From 1 nm to 3 mm, any thin or thick film can be measured accurately. However, any kind of measurement technique in this case has to keep in mind certain things like it cannot generate too much heat or light. That is because the different kind of films inserted to be measured might be made of various materials and various components that are not immune to such factors, resulting in their destruction.

The latest monitors for film thickness measurement that are used are not only good for the detection purpose but can also sometime tell other features related to the film that is measured. No doubt, these machines and equipments do come in for a price. But depending upon the service that the give and their accuracy they are bought and used in increasing numbers in technological and research institutes. Latest researches are making them to read still thinner films as science evolves more and more each day.

So with film thickness measurement, a lot of work can be done that would have been otherwise impossible. And that indeed is a huge advantage.
