Optical Profilometers

Obtain surface morphologies, step heights and surface roughness with a precision focusing pattern or white light.

An optical Profiler is a technique used to extract topographical data from a surface. The purposes of optical profilometry are to obtain surface morphologies, step heights and surface roughness. These tasks can be accomplished by using a physical probe (stylus) or by using light. Nanoscience Instruments offers two different optical profilers which use the light based approach: a structured grid confocal microscope optical profilometer and a white light interferometer optical profilometer.
