3D surface metrology - fast, flexible, accurate and contact-free

The MicroProf® - 3D surface measurement technology for all measurement tasks. With the third generation of multi-sensor surface measuring devices, FRT is at the forefront of the market. 

The MicroProf® enables for a wide range of measurement tasks which can be carried out quickly, efficiently and intuitively. As an established standard measuring device in modern 3D surface measurement technology, the MicroProf® has impressed our customers for many years for example in the semiconductor, medical and automotive industries. They are also at home in the MEMS/NANO/MST, sapphire, photovoltaic, engineering, optics and packaging industries.

Whether you want to measure the topography, the total thickness or the film thickness of your samples without contact, the versatile MicroProf® can be used universally due to the proven optical multi-sensor technology. Various optical measurement methods, which are only available as individual solutions elsewhere, have been combined into a universal, space-saving device. Depending on your requirements, the MicroProf®allows you to perform quick overview measurements of the entire sample, as well as high-resolution detail measurements down to the sub-nm range. This is made possible by the individual combinations of the sensors. Maintain flexibility for your future measurements and retrofit sensors easily and quickly, saving space, time and costs.

The MicroProf® series is the universal surface metrology tool for the fast and easy determination of topography, roughness and layer thickness. 

The MicroProf® TL allows the characterisation of both the lateral and vertical deformation of samples under thermal load. In contrast to the other models of the MicroProf® series, the "TL" is equipped with our Thermal Unit - an integrated heating and cooling plate – and optionally a MicroDAC 2D deformation sensor provided by CWM. The deployment of the thermal unit allows to determine the behaviour of modules under "real conditions" or to simulate process steps under thermal load.  

Both the tabletop and standalone MicroProf® series include the option for two-sided sample inspection. This enables for measurement of the top and bottom side of the sample simultaneously and determination of the sample thickness. The total thickness variation (TTV) of the sample can be determined along with the surface parameters, e.g. the roughness, waviness and flatness of both surfaces. The TTV option can be easily retrofitted on site.
