Anton Paar TriTec SA (previously CSM Instruments) has been leader in the development of instruments for surface mechanical properties characterization for over 30 years in both research and industrial fields.
CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and sells instruments to characterize mechanical properties of surfaces. We have been the world leader in this market for more than 30 years, first under the name of LSRH then CSEM.
CSM Instruments provides equipment that allows the mechanical characterization of a wide range of surfaces and bulk materials. Adhesion of paints, optical thin films or hard coatings can be defined using one of our Scratch Testers. These span the nano to the macro range to analyze the widest range of materials. Dynamic testing measurements can be performed to define not only the hardness of the material, but also to evaluate the plastic and elastic deformation, the elasticity module, creep and much more. For wear testing we offer the Tribometer, based on the pin-on-disc principle that operates both in the Micro and Nano regime; to record the frictional coefficient and measure the wear volume. Other equipment measures film thickness. Additionally, CSM provides three dimensional viewing capabilities of sample surfaces under most testing regimes.

k-Space Associates, Inc. is a leading manufacturer of in situ, in-line, and ex situ metrology tools for the semiconductor, thin-film, and photovoltaic (PV) industries. Our tools are used for monitoring nearly all thin-film deposition processes, including MBE, MOCVD, PLD, PVD, sputtering, and evaporation. Incorporated in 1992 and driven to supply the best technical support in the industry, our tools are used worldwide in both research and full production monitoring of semiconductor, PV, thin-film deposition, annealing, and processing applications.
kSA products measure important parameters such as temperature, deposition rate, film thickness, stress, curvature, bow, reflectivity, surface roughness, and many other material properties. These are measured in real-time by utilizing probes such as lasers, white light, UV light sources, and electron beams to investigate thin-films and substrates at an atomic level. Our thin-film analysis tools are used to extract real-time information from today’s most advanced deposition and processing applications within compound semiconductor, silicon semiconductor and photovoltaic advanced thin film production and R&D.
Sophisticated software analysis and reporting capabilities provide information to better understand tomorrow’s electronic and optoelectronic devices or to provide online control during mass production to enhance yield. Tailored optics and fully integrated solutions have been designed for simple mounting and non-invasive monitoring of advanced deposition processes such as:
