Introduction to Metrology
This document, created by Pennsylvania State University and hosted by the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge Network, serves as a guide for an activity where students are introduced to three tools that are used for measurement throughout the course of the fabrication process: profilometers, ellipsometers, and optical microscopes. The activity guide includes objectives, background information on the purpose of the three tools, and a detailed description of each, including a video demonstrating their use, and post-activity questions to test student comprehension.
