For use in manufacturing and research, the CCI HD can measure thick films down to 1.5 microns and thin film coatings down to 50 nm.


Ideal for a research environment, the CCI MP-HS measures all surface types from very rough to extremely smooth, giving capability for measurement of a broad range of components.


The CCI HD is a non contact 3D Optical Profiler with thin & thick film measurement capability. It uses an innovative, patented correlation algorithm to find the coherence peak and phase position of an interference pattern produced by our precision optical scanning unit. The new CCI HD merges world leading non-contact dimensional measurement capability with advanced thin and thick film technology

The CCI HD has been designed to offer both types of film thickness measurement in additions to dimensional and roughness capability. Thick film analysis has been used in recent years to study semi-transparent coatings down to about 1.5 microns; the limit is dependent on the refractive index of the materials and the NA of the objective. Thinner coatings have proved more of a challenge.

It is now possible to study thin film coatings down to 50 nm (also refractive index dependent) by interferometry. This new approach allows the study of properties such as film thickness, interface roughness, pinhole defects and delamination of thin coated surfaces, all from a single measurement.

  • 2048 x 2048 pixel array for large FOV with high resolution
  • 0.1 Angstrom resolution over the entire measurement range
  • 0.3% - 100% Surface reflectivity can be accommodated
  • <0.2 Angstrom RMS repeatability, <0.1% step height repeatability
  • 64-bit Control and analysis software in multi-language


Whatever the component, however quickly you must analyse it, confidence in your 3D areal measurement result is assured with the revolutionary CCI MP-HS non-contact optical profiler. A high speed 1 MP camera combines with 1/10 Ångstrom vertical resolution to deliver incredibly detailed analysis of all surface types from very rough to extremely smooth.

Greatly expand your analysis capabilities without increasing the complexity of your analysis programs. A broad range of components and surfaces can be measured without the complication of switching between measurement modes or the extra burden of intermediate lens calibration. Standardized methods, procedures and reporting ease the integration of CCI MP-HS into your quality management system.
