28 aug Fast, Non-Contact, Wafer-Scale, Atomic Layer Resolved Imaging of 2D Materials by Ellipsometric Contrast Micrography

Groot-Ammers | August 28, 2018
Adequate characterisation and quality control of atomically thin layered materials (2DM) has become a serious challenge particularly given the rapid advancements in their large area manufacturing and numerous emerging industrial applications with different substrate requirements. Here, we focus on ellipsometric contrast micrography (ECM), a fast intensity mode within spectroscopic imaging ellipsometry, and show that it can be effectively used for non-contact, large area characterisation of 2DM to map coverage, layer number, defects and contamination.
