This latest generation of Bruker interferometric optical technology delivers the high-speed operation, accuracy, and repeatability that top-level R&D and production QC requires, and adds the imaging and display advantages commonly associated with confocal microscopy. For those only familiar with imaging microscopes, Contour Elite systems add the ability to acquire quantitative measurements with significantly higher density sampling. The combination of high-throughput sub-nanometer vertical resolution metrology with enhanced imaging capability makes the Contour Elite microscopes ideal for a broad spectrum of metrology applications in industries ranging from precision machining and microelectronics to optical components and medical devices.

"Our previous Bruker system has been a workhorse for rapid, accurate measurement results, but now with the new Contour Elite 3D optical microscope, we can simultaneously acquire nanometer-scale metrology data and true images of our clients’ samples,” said Thomas F. Fister, Ph.D., Senior Director of Analytical Services at Evans Analytical Lab, CA, USA. “The ability to use high-definition and color imaging also allows us to segment the data based on color, adding another powerful capability to our measurement services. The Contour Elite makes locating sample surfaces very intuitive, and the stunning images are great for reporting results to our clients.”

“The Contour Elite microscopes are the first commercially available white light interferometry-based metrology systems that combine proprietary highest resolution imaging algorithms with innovative hardware enhancements to obtain both nanometer-scale metrology data and high-definition true images of samples,” added Kent Health, General Manager of Bruker’s Stylus and Optical Metrology Business. “Successful characterization of samples in research institutions, industrial R&D facilities, and QA/QC labs requires accurate measurements, crisp imaging and rapid throughput, all of which are combined here in a single platform. Contour Elite is a true successor of Bruker’s long-standing tradition of pushing the boundaries of measurement capability while taking the complexity out of operation and analysis."


About the Contour Elite 3D Optical Microscopes

The Contour Elite microscopes are the latest generation of Bruker’s surface profiler brand, featuring more than 30 years of technological innovations. The new models take the platform to new heights of functionality by tightly integrating advanced 3D optical metrology technology, true high-definition imaging, patent-pending illumination design, and proprietary software algorithms for data processing, analysis and visualization. Intuitive operation and new ease-of-use features make Contour Elite systems quickly productive for both operators without extensive training, as well as for experienced users. The result is the industry’s best available lateral and vertical resolution in a 3D optical microscope, providing users with superior imagery, extremely repeatable measurement data, accelerated measurement throughput, and simple yet highly customizable operation and data analysis.
