MIDDLEFIELD, CT - Zygo Corporation is pleased to introduce the Verifire™ HDX laser interferometer system with ultra-high spatial resolution and advanced imaging for measuring surface form and transmitted wavefront of high-performance optical components and systems.


Verifire HDX – UltraHigh Resolution Interferomete

At the core of the Verifire HDX interferometer is a new optical design, which delivers improved instrument transfer function (ITF) and ultra-high spatial resolution for superior characterization of mid-spatial frequency (MSF) characteristics and high-slope surface form errors, with high precision and confidence.

Loaded with standard features, like a low-noise, high-speed, 11.6 megapixel sensor and vibration-robust acquisition technologies, the Verifire HDX system sets a new benchmark for best-in-class optical metrology, MSF characterization, and process control for critical applications.

"The Verifire HDX laser interferometer system represents a significant advancement in the capability of laser interferometers to precisely measure high-quality optical components and systems. Its optical system is optimized to reveal critical mid-spatial frequency details associated with modern machining processes," remarked Tyler Steele, Product Manager for ZYGO's Metrology Instruments. "The new optical design and expanded resolution and imaging capabilities leverage our advanced ITF characterization capability that is setting industry standards".

The Verifire HDX system can be configured for a wide range of applications, with available apertures from 25 mm to 800 mm, horizontal and vertical mounting configurations, and a complete line of reference optics and accessories.
