Gain insights from the founder of FRT Metrology and learn why hybrid metrology is a real game changer.

A little about the podcast participants:

Thomas Fries – Vice President BU & General Manager FRT Metrology

Dr. Thomas Fries studied physics at the Universities of Saarbruecken and Bonn, Germany. Focusing on surface science he started to work in metrology and nano technology in the 1980s.

After several jobs in industry, he started developing and building metrology equipment with the founding of FRT. In 2019, FRT and FormFactor joined forces to build a market leader in semiconductor metrology focused on advanced packaging applications.

Juergen Koglin – Director Applications Engineering

Dr. Juergen Koglin has been engaged in surface metrology since his diploma thesis in physics at the University of Bonn. During his doctoral thesis on optical near-field microscopy at the University of Muenster, he remained with surface metrology, and continued his research as a postdoctoral scientist after receiving his doctorate in 1996. More than 20 years ago, he joined FRT as the head of the applications department. FRT became part of Formfactor in 2019, and Mr. Koglin now serves as Director of Applications Engineering for FRT Metrology.
