Woollam IR-VASE ellipsometer Woollam IR-VASE ellipsometer
J.A.Woollam Mark II IR-VASE ellipsometer is a research-grade instrument that combines sensitivity to chemical composition of FTIR spectroscopy with sensitivity to very thin films of spectroscopic ellipsometry. IR-VASE offers a powerful non-contact non-destructive method to characterize optical constants (index of refraction, coefficient of extinction, anisotropy, Mueller matrix), film thickness, material composition, chemical structure, free charge carriers, electronic transitions, etc. in a wide spectral range from far to near infrared.
