Purchase of a Spectroscopic Ellipsometer
Aarhus Universitet wishes to purchase a Spectroscopic Ellipsometer.
The contractors are university researchers in chemistry making research on thin organic fims deposited on almost flat metallic or carbon substrates. Ellipsometry is used to measure the thickness of films based on a air/film/substrate model. The relevant film thicknesses range from from 0,1 nm for monolayers to 100 nm for polymer brushes. The contractors use already an ellipsometer (EL X-02C, Dr Riess) for similar purposes but this instrument is old (>20 year) and operates only at on single wavelength (632,8 nm). It is the wish of the contractor that the new ellipsometer should be able to replace completely the old ellipsometer with similar sample flexibility and accuracy in measurements.
The purchase is published in accordance with the Public Procurement Act (Udbudsloven) § 191, because this contract has a total estimated value below the EU thresholds, but are considered to have cross-border interest.
