Abstract
(EN)
A method for controlling a thickness of a ceramic layer on a substrate, comprising providing a substrate having a front side and a back side, the substrate being coated with the ceramic layer on at least one of the front side and the back side, subjecting at least a first position L1 of the ceramic layer to ionizing radiation, detecting an emission released at the at least first position L1 of the ceramic layer in response to the ionizing radiation, and assessing the thickness of the ceramic layer at the at least first position L1 based on the detected emission. A processing system for controlling a thickness of a ceramic layer on a substrate, comprising at least one radiation unit configured to emit ionizing radiation towards at least a first position L1 of the ceramic layer; at least a first sensor being arranged at a first position S1 within the at least one radiation unit, the at least first sensor being configured to detect an emission released at the at least first position L1 of the ceramic layer in response to the ionizing radiation, and at least one controller configured to assess the thickness of the ceramic layer at least at a first position L1 based on the detected emission.
