Objective

The characterisation of thin films is not satisfactory at present by lacking methodology, knowledge and CRM's.

The goal is the full characterization of thin films (thickness, composition, homogeneity in depth as well as laterally) that are of economical importance (Industry, Automotive, Packaging markets) and having a thickness typically between 0.5nm and 1000nm.

This objective is to compare the possibilities of existing characterization techniques (used in steel research) with "more exotic" techniques not well known for steel applications. Complementarity, speed, availability and costs are important aspects of the analysis.

The final report will include results of a round robin, procedures for direct implementation and a database of reference materials.
