Noninterferometric wide-field optical profilometry with nanometer depth resolution

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Applying the principle of differential confocal microscopy to wide-field optically sectioning microscopy, we develop a noninterferometric optical profilometer without scanning mechanisms. Depth resolution of 2 nm is achieved with a power-regulated tungsten-halogen lamp as the light source and a 14-bit CCD camera as the detector. The effects of inhomogeneous surface reflectivity are removed from topographic measurements by arithmetic division. The whole system can be constructed on a single silicon chip for use as a miniaturized optical profiler.
