The nanoFAB has created some tools to assist with data conversions and calculations. Usage instructions can be found on each page.

Silicon thermal oxidation calculator

This calculator uses the Deal–Grove or Massoud models for thermal oxidation of silicon. Choose the oxidation process parameters (wet/dry, oxidation temperature, Si crystal orientation, etc.), and the calculator will return either the oxide thickness given oxidation time or the oxidation time given thickness, with a plot of results.

VASE to Filmetrics

Convert files containing optical constants obtained using variable angle spectroscopic ellipsometry (VASE) into a format compatible with the Filmetrics F50-UV tool.

Structure zone model calculator

Use this interactive plot to determine the microstructure of sputtered metal films as predicted by the Thornton structure zone model, given a material, substrate temperature, and Ar pressure in the sputtering chamber.
