Olympus LEXT Confocal


Olympus LEXT OLS3100 laser scanning confocal surface characterization microscope

The Olympus LEXT OLS3100 laser scanning confocal microscope meets a diverse range of surface profile characterization requirements.  Its resolving capabilities fall between optical and SEM techniques but with the advantage of no sample preparation.  The LEXT combines operating simplicity with advanced optics and high precision, non-contact, non-destructive metrology and inspection.  Both 3D observation and high-precision 3D measurement can be achieved in real time.  Its sub-micron imaging with lateral 120 nm and 10 nm axial resolution is designed for accurate three-dimensional measurement. The Olympus LEXT is ideal for imaging featureless or very low-contrast surfaces as well as transparent surfaces such as glass and ceramics.  The instrument is also exceptional for locating small nano-scale features such as defects in semiconductor chips.
