Regress

Regress Pro is scientific / industrial software that can be used to study experimental data coming from spectroscopic ellipsometers or reflectometers.

The application lets you load spectroscopic data coming from an ellipsometer or reflectometer and analyze them using well-proven algorithms to determine various physical parameters like film's thickness or refractive index.

Regress Pro lets you define a model of the film stack using a simple declarative language. You can also define a fit algorithm to analyze the data or, in alternative, perform an interactive fit of the data.

Several models are available to define the dispersion curves of the materials and in addition some of the most common materials are provided in the library.

The application has been developed mainly looking to the application of thin film measurement in semiconductor industry.

Features

The latest release of the application is Regress Pro 1.4.

While Regress Pro is free software and is published under the GNU GPL license a registration is required for the precompiled binaries.
