SAN DIMAS, Calif., May 6, 2010 — The 20/20 FPD microspectrophotometer from Craic Technologies Inc. is designed for colorimetry and light intensity comparison of microdisplays of all types. Able to nondestructively measure spectra on the micron scale, it can map the color and intensity variations within a single pixel, providing the manufacturer with the ability to optimize and improve the microdisplay manufacturing process. The device enables colorimetry, spectroscopy and imaging of small scale pixels that are common with high-resolution microdisplays, and it also can be configured to measure thin-film thickness and source intensity. It can image in the UV, visible and near-IR regions. It combines advanced microscopy and spectroscopy with sophisticated software to enable the user to measure spectra, colorimetry, light intensity and semiconductor film thickness by either transmission or reflectance on the micron scale. It also can measure absorbance, emission, luminescence, polarization and fluorescence spectra of sample areas smaller than 1 µm across. While microspectra are being acquired, the sample can be viewed with high-resolution digital imaging in the deep-UV, in color or in the near-IR. As the smallest pixels are now on the order of 10 µm across, the instrument enables measurement of the color and intensity of the entire display and comparison from pixel to pixel and even within a pixel. Designed for the production environment, it incorporates automated measurement capabilities, touch screen controls, easily modified processing recipes and sophisticated data analysis tools. The ability to directly image and analyze components for contaminants with ultraviolet and near IR microscopy can also be added to this instrument. An integrated thermoelectrically cooled array detector provides low noise and long-term stability. Applications include microelectromechanical systems devices, surface plasmon resonance, photonic bandgap crystals, process impurity detection, protein crystals, forensic science, drug chemistry, questioned documents, organic LEDs, flat panel color masks and combinatorial chemistry.
