Dynavac’s Spectrum Pro Optical Monitoring System ensures process precision and reliability run after run. The system measures and adjusts deposition layer thickness via single wavelength or broadband monitoring giving an unparalleled level of control and automation for your precision optical coatings
Dynavac’s Spectrum-Pro Broadband system allows the user to analyze and measure data across the entire spectrum of light. It builds upon the Single Wave Monitor platform, adding intelligent film analysis and in situ re-optimization. Wide-band measurements of coatings are obtained in real-time during deposition with a variety of high-speed spectrometers. Measurements are compared with coating models and adjusted in real-time to achieve coating performance targets.
Spectrum Pro highlights
- Broadband and single wavelength layer monitoring options
- Reflectance, Transmittance; Direct or Indirect, intermittent, continuous monitoring modes available
- Multiple detector support; Silicon, InGaAs, and PMT options
- Interfaces with OptiLayer’s OptiReOpt to offer in situ coating re-optimization
- Dual Monitor mode allows traditional turning point monitoring with secondary detector (QCM)
