Materials Analysis25M2000 for Fast In-situ or Ex-situ EllipsometryThe M-2000 line of spectroscopic ellipsometers is engineered to meet the diverse demands of thin !lm characterisation. An advanced optical design, wide spectral range, and fast data acquisition make it an extremely powerful and versatile tool.The M-2000 delivers both speed and accuracy. Our patented RCE technology combines Rotating Compensator Ellipsometry with high-speed CCD detection to collect data from the entire spectrum (hundreds of wavelengths) in a fraction of a second with a wide array of con!gurations.FeaturesAdvanced Ellipsometer TechnologyThe M-2000 utilizes our patented RCE (rotating compensator ellipsometer) technology to achieve high accuracy and precision.Flexible System IntegrationWith modular optical design, the M-2000 can be attached directly to your process chamber or con!gured on any of our table-top bases.Fast Spectral DetectionThe RCE design is compatible with advancedCCD detection to measure ALL wavelengths simultaneously.AccuracyAdvanced design ensures accurate ellipsometry measurements for any sample.Wide Spectral RangeThis ellipsometer collects over 700 wavelengths from the ultraviolet to the near-infrared - simultaneously.M2000 ApplicationsThe speed, accuracy, and wide spectral range of the M-2000 make it ideal for a diverse range of measurements. The primary application of ellipsometry is to characterize !lm thickness and optical constants. The M-2000 excels at both. It measures !lm thickness from sub-nanometers up to tens of microns and the optical properties from transparent to absorbing materials. This "exible instrument can characterize any type of thin !lm: dielectric, organic, semiconductor, metal, and more. Wide spectral range and variable angle allow the M-2000 to diagnose many multi-layered structures.In-SituThe M-2000 is ideal for in-situ monitoring and process control. It is used successfully with a number of different processes to provide real-time results.QCM-DBoth spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE) and Quartz Crystal Microbalance with Dissipation (QCM-D) can detect sub-monolayer changes in thickness of nanometer scale !lms.However, the two techniques measure quite different things: QCM-D measures the mass and associated mechanical properties of the !lm, while SE measures volume (via thickness, since V = thick x Area) and associated optical properties.Combining these two complimentary techniques gives us new information that cannot be determined from either technique$alone.
