Laser Confocal Microscopy

Laser Confocal Microscopy Services

Laser confocal microscopes combine white light with a laser light source to scan an object’s surface and collect an optical image and high-resolution surface data. The instrument collects the reflected laser light and analyses its intensity relative to the z-position of the laser to determine nanometer-level heights of features on the sample’s surface.

Below, you’ll find more information about our laser confocal microscopy services and common measurements using our Keyence laser confocal microscope.

APPLICATIONS FOR LASER CONFOCAL MICROSCOPY:

Medical devices, quality control, mechanical parts, machined parts, polished parts, injected parts, sintered parts, multi-material parts.

MEASUREMENTS using LASER CONFOCAL MICROSCOPY:

  • Dimensions (distances, heights, widths) on parts up to 200mm x 100mm (height resolution < 1µm, width repeatability 1µm)
  • Surface roughness
  • Flatness
  • Angles
  • Curvatures
  • Profile slices
