UVISEL ellipsometers offer a modular design, enabling the best fit to your applications. Four spectral ranges are available covering wavelengths from 190 to 2100nm. Full automation, a large variety of accessories and integrated microspot optics make the UVISEL a powerful and versatile spectroscopic ellipsometer for demanding research and industrial quality control.

The UVISEL can be used either ex-situ or in-situ for integration with process chambers or roll-to-roll machines. A new configuration, called the UVISEL LT, features a compact, integrated goniometer to provide a very cost-effective ellipsometer.

The DeltaPsi2 software platform provides a complete measurement, modeling, and reporting package addressing both routine and advanced thin film applications.

From thin to thick layers, with or without a transparent substrate, in the fields of semiconductors, flat panel displays, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, and optical and functional coatings, the UVISEL is the best solution for precise characterization of thin film structures.
