F10-AR Series Single Spot Thin Film Analyser

Test coating performance in seconds with the Filmetrics F10-AR series. Designed for ophthalmic anti-reflection and hard coatings, Filmetrics’ measurement technology is fast, accurate, and simple to use. Supports a wide range of thicknesses. Minimum, maximum, and average reflectance can be go/no-go tested over any number of user-defined wavelength ranges.



Filmetrics was founded in 1995 with the mission of making thin-film measurements simple and affordable. Our approach, borne of the microelectronics and software revolution, results in film-thickness measurements that take less than a second - by operators who can be trained in minutes.

Key Features

  • Intuitive Analysis Software
  • 100μm Spot Size
  • Measure Thicknesses 3nm - 250μm
  • Measure Thickness, Reflectance & Colour
  • Measures in Seconds
  • Modular & Expandable

Measure Anti-Reflective Coatings Easily

Filmetrics have developed the F10-AR series of thin film analysers to be a simple and affordable solution for measuring ophthalmic anti-reflectance and hard coatings. With minimal training, an operator can make accurate measurements in seconds. Reflectance, thickness, and colour measurements are all supported. Special algorithms reduce distortion caused by hard coat layers, and Filmetrics’ AutoBaseline technology increases baseline intervals and provides 5x greater accuracy than similar fibre-probe systems. The FIlmetrics probe design rejects up to 98% of backside reflections on substrates 1.5mm, and with even greater performance on thicker samples. This removes the need for backside preparation.

Fast & Efficient Measurement Software

To ensure an efficient workflow, Filmetrics have developed the FILMeasure software system to be as fast and simple as possible. Minimum, maximum, and average reflectance values can be configured as pass or fail tests, over any number of wavelength ranges. Filmetrics provides comprehensive technical assistance with each thin film analyser, including online diagnostics and applications support. Filmetrics support is available 24 hours a day.
