SMZ-445/460 stereoscopic zoom microscopes combine small size with high performance at a low cost for the industrial and OEM markets. These microscopes allow observation of a wide range of applications.?The SMZ-445, with 0.8x to 3.5x zoom magnification, and SMZ-460, 0.7x to 3.
The new Keyence VK-9700 Color 3-D Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope combines the capabilities of SEMs and non-contact profilometry with the simplicity of a conventional microscope. Major features include a 18,000x magnification and 0.
Much of the imaging and spectroscopy capabilities of the existing 20,000+ scanning probe microscopes (SPMs) worldwide relies on specialized data processing that links the microsecond (and sometimes faster) time scale of cantilever motion to the millisecond (and sometimes slower) time scale of image acquisition and feedback.
Microscope manufacturers continue to push the limits of their instruments with new technologies. Developers at FEI Co., Hillsboro, Ore., Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and Bruno, Czech Republic, have created a new scanning electron microscope (SEM) with extremely high resolution and the ability to produce images at very low beam energies.
Restek introduces a new handheld electronic leak detector, designed with enhanced features for user convenience and reliable performance. The new unit includes a probe storage compartment, protective carrying/storage case, and a universal power adapter set (U.S., European, UK, and Australian plugs).
Nikon’s new wafer loader NWL200 Series is the first line-up of wafer loaders capable of loading wafers as thin as 100 mm. Using a new chuck system to transfer wafers, the NWL200 Series achieves highly reliable loading suitable for inspection of next-generation semiconductors.
With a flexural modulus in excess of 1,400,000 psi and extremely low moisture absorption of .10%, Semitron MDS 100 solves engineering problems associated with uncontrolled application environments. Its low coefficient of linear thermal expansion of 1.1 x 10-5 also contributes to its stability.
Diversity is good, but is more diversity better? Diversity enables a species to survive, it weeds out dead-end developments, and it’s a source of seemingly infinite improvement. So is more better?

PT 10/35 GT Homogenizer features 60% more powerful motor, integrated speed controller, readable speed scale, noise-reducing slim-line housing, and exchangeable drive extensions. Brinkmann Instruments, Inc, www.brinkmann.
The E-series laser micro-machining system can drill, cut and mill materials including silicon, glass, plastic, ceramic and metal with micron-level accuracy. It is equipped with an on-axis vision system that allows inspection of the parts as they are being manufactured. Oxford Lasers, www.
Lux columns are equipped with two chiral stationary phases that both use coated derivatized cellulose as the chiral selector. Lux Cellulose-1 uses cellulose tris (3, 5-dimethylphenylcarbamate) and Lux Cellulose-2 uses a unique chiral selector, cellulose tris (3-chloro-4-methylphenylcarbamate).
The GeoMoS Version 4.0 software features the ability to gather, store, and analyze geotechnical data recorded through a datalogger. The virtual sensor feature allows users to model the output of one or more sensors using constants, mathematical functions and/or logic operators.
The AMESSeal system automatically dispenses and bonds a thin bead of low durometer elastometers directly onto metal, graphite, or polymer substrates. It works without the high upfront tooling and mold costs and creates a 50% decrease in sources of leakage. Ames Corp., www.amescorporation.
Spyder3 camera is equipped with dual line scan sensor technology, available with 14x14 um or 10x10 um pixel size, and offers a high throughput of 80 Mpixels/s and a 18 kHz line rate. DALSA Corporation, www.dalsa.
