Thick Film Characterization


Thick Film Characterization is a common application at Nanolab Technologies. Thick film characterizations require either cross-sectioning with chemical analysis or ion beam milling systems that are >10X faster than those used for thin film characterization because the final depth of analysis can be many microns deep into the sample.
