F10-Arc Single Spot Reflectance & Thin Film Analyser

F10-Arc Single Spot Reflectance & Thin Film Analyser

Make measuring curved surfaces easy, for reflectance, colour, and film thickness. With Filmetric’s advanced technology, measurement is fast and simple, delivering accurate results in seconds. Comprehensive support and accessories available. You can even define intuitive go/no-go criteria for colour and maximum, minimum, and average reflectance over any set of 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.

Measurement Technology Ahead of the Curve

With the F10-Arc, Filmetrics’ makes measuring lens and curved surfaces easy, including anti-reflection coatings. The F10-Arc can provide precise measurements for reflectance, colour, and film thickness in seconds. The system is simple to set up and use, requiring no complex training, and is highly robust and reliable. The F10-Arc has been designed to minimise downtime, requiring little integration time or baselining. A 40,000-hour life light source, and automatic wavelength calibration minimise the need for maintenance. With each Filmetrics tool, a comprehensive support package, including online assistance, is also included. The F10-Arc features a wavelength range of 380-1050nm. For film thickness, a thickness range of 200nm - 15μm is supported.

Software Designed for Ease of Use

Filmetrics makes reflectance measurement easy and straightforward with the FILMeasure software package. With only minimal training, users can quickly acquire accurate and reliable measurements. Measurement criteria can be pre-programmed for colour and maximum, minimum, and average reflectance over any combination of wavelength ranges. FILMeasure can be used standalone for analysis purposes.

A fully comprehensive support package is also included, with online support and diagnostics available 24 hours.
