Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Home / Equipment and Facilities / Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

This system is able to perform a wide range of measurements independent of the material being analysed, and can be used to characterise surfaces quantitatively. A laser light source and white light source captures colour and height information simultaneously.

Measurement is non-contact and with high accuracy. The photomultiplier gives 16 times more sensitivity, ensuring 3D measurement data, over any shape or material, is obtained in a short time.

The system requires no specific sample preparation and there is no damage to the sample
