Why do I have to use optical modeling?
Optical modeling is a very clean and transparent way of analyzing measured optical spectra. If the model is done in a good way it has exactly the parameters that you want to know, such as film thicknesses, band gaps, amounts of impurities or carrier concentrations.
PL computations showed a memory leak, ending up in problems during fitting with frequent re-computations of the model. The leak has been fixed today.
The list of spectra in SCOUT and CODE offered object types called ‘Angle scan’ and ‘XRR’ for a long time already. Although the names indicate what these objects are made for, there was no documentation up to now. We have started to update the SCOUT help with respect to these objects.
