Paper Abstract

An interference method for determination of the thickness of thin dielectric films deposited on metal substrates is described. The method uses the variation of multiple-beam interference of light reflected from the sample as the incident angle is changed. The effects of the phase change on reflection at the metal/dielectric interface are shown to be negligible for a MgF2 film deposited on Chromium. A working instrument is described which uses holographic lenses to obtain the large scan angles required with low aberration. The results obtained with this instrument agree well with those obtained using a Talysurf.
