Global Thin Film Metrology Systems Market: Snapshot

With a rising application scope in the measurement of thin film parameters, such as resistivity, thickness, and stress, the market for thin film metrology systems has been experiencing a noticeable rise across the world. The augmenting demand for miniaturization of semiconductors is likely to add remarkably to the growth of thin film metrology systems market in the years to come.

Thin film metrology technology finds significant usage in the measurement of film thickness due to its accuracy. Opaque films, thick films, and transparent films are the main thin film metrology systems utilized across the world. Opaque films metrology system make use of sound waves to measure film thickness. The time duration between sound induction and echo detection is directly proportional to the thickness of films. In the transparent films metrology system, x-rays at multiple wavelengths and angles are utilized to measure the thickness of films. This metrology system is more popular among consumers due to its low cost and high accuracy.

Spectroscopic reflectometry, profilometry, ellipsometry, and x-ray analysis are the prime technologies utilized in thin film metrology systems, globally. These technologies play an important role in the manufacturing of motherboards, advanced memory chip devices, transistors, and various other complex semiconductor devices. These systems are extensively utilized in these devices to maintain the uniformity of the process during the production.

Global Thin Film Metrology Systems Market: Overview

Thin film metrology system is the measurement of film thickness, accurately and precisely. The thickness of the materials measured range from fractions of nanometer to micrometers. Thin film metrology system also finds application in optical coating, semiconductor devices, and metal composition. This system is also utilized to measure the thin film coated over portable devices such as tablets and phones.
