SampleCam's Live Online Video Feed Allows Remote Real-Time Support for Filmetrics Customers

Published on September 23, 2009 at 9:04 PM

Filmetrics has announced the release of its SampleCam video accessory. The SampleCam enables an important advance in film thickness measurement by significantly increasing data available remotely to support personnel. It attaches easily to the sample stage of all new and existing F20 tabletop thin-film measurement systems. Combined with the F20's built-in remote diagnostics capabilities, it gives a complete view of all aspects of a customer's measurement configuration. This includes a full record of baselines and recipes for the past 1000 measurements.

The SampleCam increases uptime and improves recordkeeping in all F20 applications, including semiconductor, solar, display, and biomedical uses. Filmetrics President Dr. Scott Chalmers stated, “The introduction of the SampleCam means that our customers, anywhere in the world, can have the equivalent of a Filmetrics applications engineer sitting next to them 24 hours a day.”

Filmetrics instruments determine film thickness by illuminating the film with white light and measuring the spectrum reflected off of the film. The wavelength ranges are available between 220-1700 nm. Once the spectrum is collected, the Filmetrics software analyzes it to determine thickness, optical constants, and other user-selectable parameters.
