The Next Generation of OCT Layer Thickness Measurement Systems

Our researchers use optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure the thickness of very thin layers and are developing the next generation of these measurement systems in »Dünnschicht-OCT«. In the process, the experts are pushing into layer thickness ranges of less than 2 µm. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK).
