Filmetrics was founded in 1995 with the mission of making thin-film measurements simple and affordable. Prior to our arrival, film-thickness measurement instruments cost $50,000 or more and required advanced training. Single measurements took as long as an hour.
The Filmetrics approach, borne of the microelectronics and software revolution, results in film-thickness measurements that take less than a second – by operators who can be trained in minutes.
Filmetrics was acquired by KLA in March 2019.
