The MProbe 40: MSP  Thin Film Measurement System

MProbe 40 MSP

MProbe 40 (MSP) for thin film measurement with small spot size

The MProbe 40 is a complete thin-film measurement system. Select the model and options the fit best for your application requirements or let us know your application and we will help to select…

You’ll be ready to start measurements –everything is included.

Our extensive materials library has 500+ materials, with easy import/creation of the new materials and support for a wide range of parametrized materials (from Cauchy to Tauc-Lorentz) is included.

One-click measurement combines data acquisition (reflection or transmittance spectrum) and data analysis. Everybody is a measurement expert with MProbe!

Of course, we have all the sophisticated tools including sensitivity analysis, error-estimator, simulation, filmstack switching, global optimization, layers and materials linking, etc. for complicated applications development

Reflectance and transmittance spectral data can also be used as a raw measurement (for example, as in spectrophotometer) or a for a wide range of other applications.
