The P10 is a stylus (contact) profilometer that is used to measure the surfacce height differences (steps) on samples. This system operates by the stylus physically making contact with the sample surface to measure changes in surface height. This tool is only allowed for Au free samples. In, GaN, or other related materials are not allowed.

Best forCMOS compatible patterns (PR, dielectrics or CMOS metals)
LimitationsCan not measure very small setps on the surface (< 50 nm). For such purposes use AFM.
Characteristics/FOMStylus tip moves over the surface to map the surface topography
Caution withSample surface should be hard enough to avoid any deposits over the tip (e.g if PR is not sufficiently bakes). If not properly handled, the tip may break.
Machine Charges (academic rate)5pu/hour
