k-Space Offers a New Accessory for Their In Situ Metrology Tools

k-Space is proud to announce the addition of a new accessory, kSA Insight, for their metrology tools. This tool allows researchers and operators to view their wafers and platen in real-time from within the k-Space software. The imaging system utilizes a high-resolution color camera and is plug-and play compatible with all k-Space thin-film metrology software.

k-Space CEO, Darryl Barlett, stated “Several customers have requested the ability to see their wafers and platen from their computer screen during deposition, so we designed this tool to seamlessly integrate with their existing k-Space software. So, whether you are running kSA 400, kSA BandiT, kSA MOS, or kSA ICE, you can seamlessly view your platen and wafers with this plug in.”

Customers can adapt the accessory to viewports of various sizes, and the included zoom lens allows for focus over a large range of working distances. The live video can be zoomed in or out, and full resolution color images can be snapped and stored at any time from within the k-Space software.
