FR-pOrtable is a unique miniaturized solution for accurate & precise non-destructive characterization of transparent and semi-transparent single films or stack of films. With FR-pOrtable the user can perform reflectance and transmittance measurements for films in the 370-1020nm spectral range.

The compact design of FR-pOrtable and the custom designed reflection probe, guarantee high accuracy and repeatability of the performed measurements. FR-pOrtable, can be either mounted on the supplied stage or can be easily transformed to a handheld thickness measurement tool to be placed over the sample under characterization. This way, FR-pOrtable is the only optical characterization tool for in-field applications.
