MicroXAM-800: Optical Surface Profiler for 3D Measurement of Surface Topography.


The programmable stages, customizable recipe set-up, scripting and expandable library of analysis tools, are a few of the highlighted features of the tool, Sebastian Kossak, co-owner Nanoscience Instruments

Nanoscience Instruments is proud to partner with KLA-Tencor to offer the MicroXAM-800 optical profiler a white light interferometer. For more than 15 years, Nanoscience Instruments has provided advanced instrumentation and applications consulting for microscopy and surface analysis techniques.

For more than 40 years, KLA-Tencor has been a leader in innovative optics, sensors, and high performing computing technologies in process control. Their inspection, metrology and data analytics tools are used for R&D and manufacturing process control. The KLA-Tencor series of benchtop stylus and optical surface profilers aligns with Nanoscience Instruments’ offerings of surface metrology, microscopy, mechanical testing and research and development manufacturing tools.

“The partnership with KLA-Tencor allows our application scientists to provide additional application specific support in a variety of research disciplines. The MicroXAM-800 surface profiler expands our surface metrology offerings to provide a more complete catalog of products for any application,” said Mark Flowers, co-owner Nanoscience Instruments.

About the MicroXAM-800
The MicroXAM-800 is an optical surface profiler from KLA-Tencor’s surface metrology product line. Using the principles of coherence scanning interference microscopy (CSI), also known as white light interferometry (WLI), the MicroXAM-800 profiler includes hardware and software features necessary to meet stringent R&D and production environment requirements. “The programmable stages, customizable recipe set-up, scripting and expandable library of analysis tools, are a few of the highlighted features of the tool,” said Sebastian Kossak, co-owner of Nanoscience Instruments.

The MicroXAM-800 optical surface profiler supports applications involving highly precise step height and surface roughness measurements in R&D and production applications. For more information about the MicroXAM-800 profiler, please visit the product webpage.
