Paper Abstract

A new type of spectroscopic ellipsometry is proposed for imaging optical properties of non-uniform thin films. Unlike conventional spectroscopic ellipsometers, the ellipsometer is neither based on a monochromator nor a spectrometer. By using broad-band light source and white-light interference technique, the ellipsometry system efficiently illuminates the sample and enables us to detect reflected light with a CCD or CMOS image sensor. Therefore fast imaging ellipsometry is realized over wide spectral range. In this study, we built simple imaging ellipsometer based on P-S-A (polarizer-sample-analyzer) configuration and show fundamental experimental results.
