Confirming Flatness, Surface Finish and Step Properties of Laser Etalons

Etalons are flat optics with high specification (ë/100 or more). They can be used to concentrate laser beams at a certain frequency. They have high specifications especially for surface finish, flatness and step height/alignment which are challenging metrology requirements. Taylor Hobson provides solutions for these challenging requirements with both contact and non-contact measurement options.

2D Analysis Software

The Ultra Contour 2D Analysis Software analyses angle, length, and radius through direct comparison with component drawing data. The customised automated routine with automatic reporting and tolerancing functions for process control permits determination of angle, step height and other important Etalon dimensional features.
