The complete characterization of coatings for precision optics usually involved normal and near normal incidence measurements. The simplicity of this approach, however, is not without compromise. Indeed, normal incidence transmission (T) measurements and near normal reflectance (R) measurements are typically conducted in two separate instruments with no guarantee that reflectance and transmission measurements are made from exactly the same patch on the sample.

A recent development by Agilent Technologies, the Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS), combines both absolute reflection and transmission measurements from the same patch of a sample’s surface in a single automated platform for a wide range of angles of incidence. We will also describe a new use of a sample positioning control allowing for rotational and vertical motion, thereby providing for automated unattended multi-angle R/T analysis.   

In this Webinar we will hear from leading experts who have successfully applied this new technology to improve optical coating design, development and measurement practices.
