What Are 3D Optical Microscopes?
3D optical microscopes characterize three-dimensional surface topography. First, they optically capture multiple surface images. Then, the microscope stitches the images together in XYZ axis. Finally, they quantifying the data to calculate roughness, step height, film thickness, curvature, bow, and defects. However, all this is not possible with traditional 2D optical microscopy. Our 3D optical profilers use a combination of techniques to provide a quantitative 3D surface. Learn more about these techniques below.
What Is Nipkow Confocal Imaging?
Confocal microscopy is a non-contact optical imaging technique. It allows for higher resolution and contrast of surface topography utilizing pin holes. First, these pin holes block out-of-focus light during image scanning. Then, white light and a Nipkow confocal disk capture a large sample area at a very high speed creating a three-dimensional scan. The UP-5000 and UP-3000 3D optical microscopes have this feature.
What Is A White Light Interferometer?
White light interferometry (WLI) is a non-contact optical method. WLI characterizes surface topography using scanning interferometry. The technique involves a beam splitter that splits a light beam into a measurement beam and a reference beam. Then these beams are then recombined to create an interference pattern and are then analyzed to generate 2D and 3D models of surfaces. Rtec Instruments’ UP-2000 WLI Optical Profilometers specialize in this feature.
What is Dark Field Imaging?
Dark field microscopy is a technique that creates high resolution contrast in specimens that are not imaged well under normal bright field imaging conditions. Using special dark field objectives and a dedicated light system, a dark background is created. This allows for a high degree of contrast for surface features. All Rtec 3D Optical microscopes provide dark field microscopy.
What Is Variable Focus Imaging?
Variable Focus Imaging is an imaging technique used to get a surface image completely in focus. Our microscopes complete this by capturing images at different X, Y, and Z values. Then they stitch the images together to create a fully focused bright field profile of the surface. Both 2D and 3D images use this technique. Each of the Rtec Instruments 3D Optical Microscopes use variable focus imaging for crystal clear imaging.
