High Definition, Ultra-Depth 3D Surface Analysis
KeyenceObservation / Measurement Guide-Vol.2 from KEYENCE contains details and topographic displays of 3D surface analyses such as profile, roughness and comparative measurements. Applications utilize the KEYENCE VK-9700 Laser Confocal Microscope with 18,000X magnification, 0.001µm resolution, a large depth-of-field, and 3D imaging. The VK-9700 complements the SEM. Time-consuming specimen cutting or processing, such as gold-sputtering, is not required.
