Our products

Product category: Detectors for laminated glass

EddyCus® TF inline

The EddyCus® TF inline system offers contact-free real-time monitoring of deposition processes of thin-films, e.g. transparent conductive oxides using high speed eddy current measurement. It applies the method of Eddy Current Sensing and provides comprehensive conductivity/sheet resistance analysis. The system characterizes all conductive thin films including zinc oxide (ZnO), indium tin oxide (ITO) and other TCOs.
Other applications are thickness or sheet resistance measurements of metal layers or the analysis multi-layer carbon fiber fabrics regarding layup, orientation, missing bundles, or wrinkles.
EddyCus® TF inline can be integrated in almost any production line incl. vacuum chambers for 100% coverage of in-line analysis of conductivity properties. Up to 16 heads can be combined to enable tight lateral inspection even for large glass substrates. LayTec can easily adapt the system to customer’s needs for measurement ranges and dynamics.

EddyCus® TF inline offers quality control of low and high conductive thin-films, especially TCO sheet resistivity monitoring from 0.01 - 1000Ohm/sq and thickness measurements from 5 nm.

X Link® in-line version

For in-line applications, the measurement heads can be integrated into the cooling press of the laminator or further down the production line. The employment of multiple measurement heads enables the determination of center-to-edge uniformity. This way, X Link® facilitates closed loop feedback process control and quality assurance.

PearL

The PearL monitoring system analyzes the spectrum of photoluminescent radiation emitted from a probed surface after excitation with laser light. It is designed for in-line integration in production lines. Spectroscopic photoluminescence (sPL) gives access to information on the band gap, electronic defects and the related composition of materials, e.g. the gallium / (gallium+indium) ratio (Ga/(Ga+In) ratio) and copper (Cu) content of CIGS solar cells. LayTec’s sPL has a total measurement and analysis time of only 100 ms.

The story behind LayTec

Founded in 1999, LayTec has quickly become the world market leader in the field of in-situ metrology for LED and LASER production. In 2008, LayTec started to market its proven expertise for R&D and industrial applications beyond the semiconductor industry: we developed advanced in-line metrology solutions for large-area deposition techniques such as amorphous, polycrystalline and organic thin-films in PV and display industries. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, LayTec was ranked as one of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Germany. In 2011, LayTec acquired the assets of the former competitor ORS (Optical Reference Systems), which is now LayTec UK. The new subsidiary adds further valuable technologies to LayTec metrology portfolio.
Currently, the company has more than 2000 metrology systems installed at customer sites around the world, 75% of which are in Asia, 10% in North America and 15% in Europe. LayTec offers a worldwide customer support and service network including local representatives.
