Fast and flexible laser profilometry
Laser profilometry uses point sensors along with highly precise stages to create profiles and 3D topographies. The sample, which is placed under the sensor, is moved by the stages while the sensor transmits the height data to the measurement control unit. To improve lateral accuracy, the sensors are synchronized to the stage movement. This method also avoids inaccuracies caused by acceleration and deceleration of the stages.
The Solarius laser profilometers come with one of the following sensors, depending on the specific application:
- The autofocus sensor AF2000
- The holographic sensor CP1000
- The confocal point sensor LT8010
- The white light probe sensor
Laser profilometers distinguish themselves through their flexibility and ability to be easily automated. Therefore, they can be found in R&D as well as production environments.
As opposed to tactile profilers, measurement with laser profilometers is non-contact and for that reason non-destructive. They also have a higher measurement speed, which makes them ideal for production environments.
The accuracy of the Solarius profilometers is verified by in-house calibration and testing procedures with certified standards.
