The room temperature reflectance of thin (£ 1000Å) AlN epi-films deposited on n type 6H SiC has been measure. These epi-films are too thin to produce interference fringes, from which epi-films thickness is often extracted, within the measured spectral region. However, features from the AlN reststrahl reflectance band can be clearly seen for AlN epi-films as thin as 250Å. Thicknesses are extracted from the measured spectra by comparing them directly to calculated spectra with the epi-film thickness being the only fitting parameter. The accuracy of these thickness determinations is confirmed by comparing them to thickness measured on samples studied by cross sectional TEM.
