F3-CS Series Single Spot Thin Film Analyser

Measure small samples quickly and easily with the Filmetrics F3-CS Series thin film analysers. Simply place a sample face down on the stage, and layer measurements are produced in seconds. Requires minimal setup, training, or maintenance. The system has everything necessary to measure hundreds of types of layers, no matter if they are on transparent and opaque substrates.



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.

Fast Measurement for Small Samples

Designed for measuring small samples, the Filmstrips F3-CS series of thin film measurement tools provide a fast and simple solution for film measurement. With minimal training, even inexperienced users can quickly measure layers such as parylene and vacuum coatings. Filmetrics’ measurement technology can measure in seconds. To measure a small witness or coupon sample, a user simply places it face down on the measurement stage, and layer thicknesses are automatically measured. Filmetrics’ AutoBaseline technology automatically adjusts instrument sensitivity to minimise setup time.

Intuitive Software Makes Measurement Easy

With Filmetrics’ FILMeasure software, making accurate measurements in simple and easy. The optical constants for all common dialectric and semiconductor layers, such as parylene C, N and HT, are included in the software. Thickness measurement results are displayed in real time as samples are measured. Each Filmetrics measurement system is backed by comprehensive technical and applications support, including online diagnostics and assistance. Filmetrics support is available 24 hours a day.
