Get a 3D optical profilometer for less than half the price of an atomic force microscope (AFM)!

The Profilm3D® optical profiler uses a state-of-the-art non-contact optical method for measuring surface profiles and roughness, white light interferometry (WLI). White light interferometry measures surface profiles and roughness down to 0.05µm; adding the low-cost phase shifting interferometry (PSI) option takes the minimum vertical feature size down to 0.001µm.

The newest generation of the Profilm3D non-contact optical profilometer offers Enhanced Roughness Mode for accurately imaging rough surfaces and highly-sloped sidewalls.
