Film, coating, and surface treatment professionals face many obstacles collecting valuable data from their product. Traditional measuring equipment, typically designed to service other industries, has a variety of drawbacks that can hamper problem solving and research efforts. The purpose of this presentation is to address some of those challenges and present solutions afforded by emerging technology. This presentation will particularly emphasize: laser scanning confocal microscopy, surface roughness/topography, film/coating thickness, and defect analysis.
