F50 Series

Automated Film Thickness Mapping

The Filmetrics F50 family of products can map film thickness as quickly as two points per second. A motorized R-Theta stage accepts standard and custom chucks for samples up to 450mm in diameter. (This is the same high-lifetime stage that performs millions of measurements in our production systems!)

Map patterns can be polar, rectangular, or linear, or you can create your own with no limit on the number of measurement points. Dozens of pre-defined map patterns are supplied.

The F50 film thickness mapping system connects to the USB port of your Windows® computer and can be set up in minutes.

The different F50 instruments are distinguished primarily by thickness and wavelength range. The standard F50 is the most popular. Generally shorter wavelengths (e.g. F50-UV) are required for measurement of thinner films, while longer wavelengths allow measurement of thicker, rougher, and more opaque films.
