The system allows measuring height variations on the surface of the sample. The measurement is performed electromechanically by moving a diamond tip on the surface of the sample according to a user-programmed sweep length, speed, and force. The tip is connected to a Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LDVT), which produces and processes electrical signals that correspond to surface variations of the sample.
Our system is only configured in 2D mode:
- Manual XY translation: 101,6 x 101,6 mm (4 x 4 inches) XY translation;
- Manual leveling;
- Maximum sample thickness: 50 mm;
- Maximum scanning legth: 55 mm;
- Diameter of needle tip: 2 microns;
