CIGS, CIGSSe and CdTe Solar PV Thin Film Composition and Thickness Measurement
SMX is a suite of XRF composition and thickness measurement tools designed exclusively for the photovoltaic manufacturing industry. System SMX comprises a bench top platform (SMX-BEN),
an in-line/near-line platform (SMX-ILH) and an in-situ platform for vacuum measurement (SMX-ISI).
System SMX models are designed around a common machine architecture and operator
interface, delivering maximum control, consistency and reproducibility
between XRF tools inserted at multiple points in your
SMX-BEN bench top tools are ideal for R&D, process development and failure analysis. SMX-BEN facilitates material selection and recipe formulation in a pre- or early production ramp phase, and supports your SMX in-process tools well into capacity production.
is designed for in-line, post-process atmospheric measurement, enabling control and adjustment
of film composition
and thickness in real time. SMX-ILH can accommodate flexible (stainless steel and polyimide) and rigid glass substrates; measurements can be performed on stationary or moving substrates for control of blanket or patterned films.
is installed in the clean vacuum section of a line or tool to enable control and yield management of glass or web deposition processes. Solar Metrology offers SMX-ISI configurations for both static point measurement and multiple cross-process flow gradient analysis.
