Course Name

SDP_NCL39_2021 - Optical Charaterization of Thin Films using Spectroscopic Ellipsometry
Instructor Name :- Dr. Pankaj Poddar


This programme includes spectroscopic ellipsometry which is a very important surface science technique for optical properties, very useful metrology tool in electronic industry, silicon fabrication labs, optical devices etc. It is also immensely popular in the photonics, polymer, and opthelmic industries as well. This technique can give the individual film thickness, bandgap, refractive index, surface/interfacial roughness, and porosity for the thin films coated on a substrate. Students will learn in‐depth data analysis, and sample preparation technique. Live video demonstrations will be conducted with emphasis on real‐time interactive sessions.

Salient Features

Salient Features of the training courses
The main focus is to train youths in such a way that they receive employment and to improve entrepreneurship.
The training programs would be on the lines of international level so that the youths can not only meet the domestic demands but also of other countries like the US, Japan, China, Germany, Russia, and those in West Asia.
The course methodology of this program would be innovative, which would include group discussions, brainstorming sessions, practical experiences, and case studies.
Equal priority to theory classes and practical sessions,
Lectures assisted with multimedia aids,
Hands-on practice experience and
Brief on alternate carrier options.


Evaluation will consist of the following components
Theory Courses
Written question paper
Student Participation to all sessions
Practical Courses
Video / Audio


Postgraduate degree in science or undergraduate engineering streams.
