  • optical emission spectroscopy (OES)

In dry etching, a method of characterizing the composition of solid materials such as metal. Atoms in the OES technique are excited by energy that comes from a spark formed between the sample and an electrode. This energy emits light, which can then be converted into a spectral signal. The intensity recorded at the peaks of this spectral signal produce accurate material composition analysis.
