Dual rotating compensator ellipsometer RC2From Woollam Co.
The RC2 is the first spectroscopic ellipsometer with two rotating compensators. It combines the best features of previous instruments with innovative new technology: dual rotating compensator, achromatic compensator design, advanced light source and next-generation spectrometer design. The RC2 is a near-universal solution for the diverse applications of spectroscopic ellipsometry and Mueller matrix ellipsometry.Features
- Ex-situ, in-situ or inline
- Dual rotating compensator ellipsometer
- Modular design with variety of options and configurations
- Maximum spectral range 193 to 2500 nm
- Fully automated
The RC2 design builds up on 25 years of experience. It combines the best features of previous models with new innovative technology: dual rotating compensators, achromatic compensator design advanced light source and next-generation of spectrometer design. The RC2 is a near-universal solution for diverse application of spectroscopic ellipsometry. Based on the modularity, the RC2 can be attached directly to your process chambers or configured on any of our table-top bases. Advanced design ensures accurate ellipsometry measurements for any sample and includes measurement features like Generalized Ellipsometry, Mueller matrix and depolarisation.
Fast measurement speed
The synchronous operation of both compensators provides highly accurate data without waiting to “zone-average” over optical elements. Simultaneously collects the entire spectrum (over 1000 wavelengths) in a fraction of a second.
Advanced light source
The next-generation light source includes computer-controlled beam intensity to automatically optimize the signal on any sample (low or high reflection).
- RC2-U/X: 210 to 1000 nm
- RC2-D: 193 to 1000 nm
- NIR extension to 1690 nm
- XNIR extension to 2500nm
Data acquisition rate
Measures the complete spectrum in 1/3 of a second – even advanced data types like the Mueller matrix.
