Veeco Instruments has introduced its ContourGT surface metrology product family, the company's 10th generation of precision, non-contact, 3D optical surface profilers. The device is based on the comapny's white light interferometry (WLI) technology, and employs high-brightness dual-LED illumination and superior vertical resolution to enable precision measurements in difficult applications. The profiler features the company's Vision64 operating and analysis software platform and a modular user interface. Designed to help increase yield and decrease manufacturing costs, the ContourGT is suitable for production QA/QC and R&D precision machining and manufacturing applications within the high brightness LED, solar, ophthalmic, semi-conductor, medical device and academic research markets
