Whitepaper – Sub-nm layer measurements using ASOPS and laser induced ultrasound

The measurement of thin film layer thickness in industries such as silicon wafer manufacture requires the highest accuracy, resolution and speed, all in a non-invasive, non-destructive method. Here we report on laser-induced ultrasound using two frequency offset high repetition rate lasers to study layer thickness to a sub-nm resolution. Read the whitepaper here.

The first photograph of light as a wave and a particle

Einstein showed us in 1909 that light can behave both as a particle and a wave, but we are yet to see a photograph of light in both states simultaneously, until now! Scientists at the École polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, have managed to capture the image of light exhibiting both properties. The breakthrough work […]
