Please note this short course requires participants to bring their own laptop.

Day 3: Intermediate Modeling & Advanced Topics

  • Non-idealities: thickness non-uniformity, bandwidth, backsurface reflections & depolarization
  • Strategies for absorbing films
  • Transparent anisotropic films
  • Multi-layer film analysis strategies
  • Review


Registration for this course closed. Please check back with us for future WVASE courses on our event or short course pages. Thank you for your interest
