The Nexview 3D optical surface profiler is the top of the range surface profiler from Zygo. The Nexview excels at measuring all surfaces from super-smooth to super-rough, with sub-nanometer precision, independent of field of view. 

Measurement types include flatness, roughness, large steps and segments, cones, thin films and steep slopes, with feature heights ranging from < 1 nm up to 20000 µm.

Key Features:

  • Measure any surface – from rough machined parts to super smooth optical surfaces, including thin films, steep slopes (up to 85°), and large steps.
  • Fully automated design – the fly-by-wire design allows easy, fast sample manipulation and measurement. Focussing, light levels, sample orientation, filtering, and zoom selection can all be controlled from the Mx™ software.
  • Gage capable performance – exceptional precision and repeatability for the most demanding production applications.
  • Vibration tolerance technology – robust operation in virtually any environment. The SureScan™ technology in addition to built in vibration damping table eliminates virtually all noise from extended scans.
  • ISO 25178 – surface measurement parameters.
  • All new graphical workflow software – familiar Windows 7 based design making training simpler whilst providing greater functionality.
  • Customisable operation – our Application Engineers at Lambda can advise and tailor the Zygo Nexview to meet your specific measurement needs. For cutting edge research, or for highly automated quality control, the customisable and flexible software can be adapted to suit you.

All New Analysis & Control Software
The Nexview profiler uses all-new Mx™ software that powers complete system control & data analysis, including rich interactive 3D maps, quantitative topography information, intuitive measurement navigation, and built in SPC with statistics, control charting, and pass/fail limits.

• Interactive 3D plots – zoom, pan, rotate, and update results in real time.

• Flexible Analyses – a wide array of quantitative results, data views, and filters are included.

• Advanced Analysis Tool  provides a free-form layout area for data investigation, manipulation, and measurement comparison.

• Intuitive user interface with a workflow-based design makes it easy to learn and use.

• Floating tool strips are customisable and can be repositioned to match your workflow.

Additional application modules for specific needs, such as measurement in the presence of transparent films and 2D vision analysis, are available for customers that require these capabilities.

The Only Profiler You Need
You no longer have to select a profiler based on the type of surface you want to measure. The Nexview profiler measures topography of virtually any surface from a super polished optical surface with sub-Angstrom surface roughness, to steep machined angles up to 85 degrees. It does all this in 3D, without contact, and provides the best qualities of other profiling technologies (stylus, confocal, focus scanning) without their shortcomings.

Automated Operation
The Nexview profiler is a fly-by-wire tool with no manual controls, so it can be fully automated with programmed sequences to measure multiple part segments, recipe based in-tray part measurements, or wide-area part stitching of larger surfaces into a single measurement.Clean, Streamlined, DesignThe Nexview features a large work area with clear lines of sight to help make measurement setups and changeovers simple and quick. Its automated 200 mm measurement stage is the epitome of clean and efficient industrial design. It features an embedded ±4 degree high load tilt stage with parcentric correction, making aligning measurement surfaces simple, even for featureless samples.

Application Support from Lambda
Lambda provide specialist engineering and scientific support to tailor the Zygo Nexview to your specific needs. We have a fully configured Nexview at our facility in Harpenden, Herts and can provide detailed advice on instrument setup, in addition to taking sample measurements. Contact us and one of our Application Engineers will be happy to discuss your requirements.
