Measure Shape and Surface Roughness with 3D Laser Confocal Microscopy

Olympus’ OLS5000 laser confocal microscope accurately quantifies surface roughness and shape at the submicron level.

The OLS5000 offers four times faster data acquisition compared to the earlier model from Olympus, thus considerably increasing productivity.

1. Precise imaging

The OLS5000 has the capability to capture the shape of any surface.
