XRR + GI-XRD of thin films
Grazing Incidence X-ray diffraction (GI-XRD) measurement of thin films + X-ray reflectometry (XRR) analysis of thin films.
Results include density (g/cm³), thickness (nm), and roughness (nm) values.
For XRR, the thickness should generally be below 100 nm and at least one order of magnitude larger than the roughness. For surface roughness measurements, the thickness should preferably be < 250 nm.
Please note that the suitable thickness of the film depends on the material. If you need more information on the analysis, you can always contact our experts.
