Examples

  • One technique that we worked with very early is called ellipsometry.

    Ars Technica

  • A new take on an old instrument: adding fiber to find hidden details on surfaces : In an effort to make an old technique, called ellipsometry, more useable, we discovered that random is not always random, and that you can use randomness to make accurate measurements.

    Ars Technica

  • In practice, however, ellipsometry suffers from a significant challenge: getting polarized light anywhere near the surfaces we want to understand.

    Ars Technica

  • The ellipsometry people I suggested this to stared at me as if I had grown a nipple on my forehead.

    Ars Technica

  • There is a good reason why everyone thinks optical fibers are death to ellipsometry.

    Ars Technica

  • But, in ellipsometry, we are measuring a change in polarization due to a sample-we don't really care about the absolute polarization.

    Ars Technica

  • If we calibrate the fiber once, and then measure the orientation of the circle after reflection from the sample, you can obtain, after a bit of data processing, exactly the same information as you would from a conventional ellipsometry.

    Ars Technica

  • The Alpha-SE ™ will measure both thickness and refractive index with the use of CompleteEASE ™: the most powerful analysis ellipsometry software currently on the market.
