3D Optical Surface Profilers

ZYGO's 3D Optical Profiler instruments enable precise, quantitative, ISO-compliant, non-contact surface measurement and characterization of micro- and nano-scale surface features, capturing up to two million data points in just seconds. Choosing the right optical profiler system depends on your application's requirements, including speed, precision, vertical range, automation, and flexibility.

Our 3D Optical Profiler instruments achieve best in class performance through advanced, patented, and differentiated technologies with superior speed, precision, resolution, and application versatility all in a single metrology instrument.

With multiple configurations that range from simple to use benchtop systems to advanced fully automated platforms, ZYGO's optical profilers have proven themselves in installations that range from R&D and standards laboratories to industrial process control workstations to in-line OEM metrology solutions.

Regardless of the installation type, our systems provide leading performance for optical measurements of surface structure and texture across varying surface scales and offer hundreds of reportable parameters, including areal surface roughness to ISO 25178 standards as well as 2D profile standards, ISO 4287/4288.

How Does ZYGO's Technology Compare? What Are Some Of The Key Advantages?

Our instruments include several advantages based on the core technology employed, system-level features and options, software functionality, and many others. For simplicity, we have compared our CSI-technology to two of the most common alternative optical technologies (confocal, focus variation). Highlighted below are just some of the key attributes and advantages.

• Higher speed

• Superior Z-resolution (independent of magnification)

• Wider magnification/FOV range

• Capable of measuring super-smooth to rough surfaces

What Are Some Of the Main Markets and Applications?

• Automotive & Precision Machining

• Micro-manufacturing & Nanotechnology

• Consumer Electronics & Displays

• Optics & Photonics

Specialty Models

In addition to the our standard configurations, we have specialty models that apply CSI in a package tailored for specific applications which include:

Micro lenses and molds, spherical and aspherical
Compass™ – For applications that require complete characterization of micro lenses and their alignment features, ZYGO's Compass™ system provides full surface, non-contact, 3D mapping of surface form and deviation, topography, and relational/dimensional metrology of spherical or aspherical lenses and molds with sub-nanometer height precision, and millions of data points.

Nomad portable optical profiler
Nomad™ – The Nomad™ portable optical profiler is the ideal solution for measuring surfaces that are too large for the measurement stage of a conventional workstation profiler. As with our other optical profilers, the Nomad portable profiler has sub-nanometer measurement precision that is independent of field magnification.

Packaging Metrology System for Panel-Based PCB's
APM650™ – The APM650™ packaging metrology system provides automated measurement of panel-based PCBs and other advanced packaging applications. It provides both 2D & 3D measurements with sub-nanometer vertical precision and sub-micron lateral precision. The APM650 system features a large X/Y stage which accommodates panels up to 650 x 650 mm.

Profiler Objectives

Objectives for ZYGO Optical Profilers
Optical profiler objectives, mounted on a turret
The performance and capability of any optical profiler is largely dependent on the lens objectives it uses. Objectives determine the magnification, working distance, slope capability, and field of view of the profiler, so choosing the right objective(s) is very important to achieving your metrology goals. The wide range of objectives ZYGO offers for its optical profilers is unmatched in the industry, and is continually growing. All ZYGO objectives are designed and manufactured in-house, ensuring top-quality objectives that are ideally suited for use in our profilers. This capability is unique to ZYGO.

ZYGO also offers specialty objectives for long working distances, wide field of view, and the ability to measure thin films and surfaces that are under a transparent surface. Download the objectives selection chart (PDF) to see our full lineup of objectives.
