The newÂ Olympus LEXTÂ OLS5000Â 3D laser confocal scanning microscope delivers precise imaging in a fast, easy-to-use system for research and development and quality control inspection in the automotive, electronic component and semiconductor industries.
The OLS5000 microscope was designed with new features and updated technology to enhance its performance and advance measurement outputs:
4K scanning technology and optics designed specifically for the OLS5000 microscope provideÂ improved measurement performance and reliability*. This combination of technology and optics enable theÂ detection of near-perpendicular featuresÂ and small steps at close to nano-scale.Â
Acquires dataÂ four times faster*Â and improves the user experience with intuitive software designed toautomate many common settings.Â
An expansion frame and a dedicated, long working distance (LWD)** lens perform precise measurementsÂ on samples up to 210 mm in height and concavities up to 25 mm deepÂ â€" even those with uneven surface cracks.Â
The result is simple, accurate, non-contact three-dimensional measurement of a wide variety of samples.
With the steady advancement of nanotechnology and the growing sophistication and miniaturization of electronic devices and car parts, quality management through the accurate measurement of components´ surface features is more important than ever. In the past, inspectors conducted surface shape and roughness measurements using direct contact, stylus-based roughness instruments. But an increasing number of samples, such as fragile films or samples with height variations less than the diameter of the stylus, gave rise to a need for more precise, nondestructive, non-contact measurement techniques.Â
Faster data acquisition and enhanced ease-of-use
The OLS5000 microscope uses the PEAK algorithm for fast, precise measurements at both low and high magnifications with four times the data acquisition speed of the previous model. Smart Scan II and analysis template functions automate the sequence of steps from data acquisition to reporting.
Increased sample size functionality
An optional expansion frame enables the OLS5000 microscope to accommodate samples up to 210 mm in height. Observation and measurement can also be performed using a long working distance lens, which enables a separation of up to 25 mm between the lens and the sample.
*When compared to its predecessor
**A lens that can work at a greater distance from the sample surface than is possible with a conventional lens.
