Vertical Scanning Interferometer
ZX5 & ZX100
Zeta ZX5 optics combines the sensitivity of a Michelson interferometer with our true color imaging.
It is ideal for measuring nanometer level heights over large area
|Typical Optical Parameters|
|Objective Mag||5X to 100X|
|Field of View||4.5 mm to 90 μm|
|Z Sensivity||< 1nm|
Air Bearing Surfaces
Air bearing surfaces of the read/write head are precisely machined to control the fly-height as the head glides over the surface of the magnetic media inside a disk drive
Step: 0.25 μm
Overall size: ~ 1 mm x 1 mm
“Ski-Jump” on a Hard Disk Drive Substrate
ZX5 enables large area imaging with nanometer level resolution. Shown on the left is the image of solar bare silicon wafer exhibiting uneven surface roughness.
Image of a “ski-jump” on a hard disk drive substrate. The 4.5mm X 3.7mm image has the vertical sensitivity of a few nm and can be used to detect the roll-off profiles at the edge of the disks.
