Sunrise Optical LLC (http://zebraoptical.com) has developed an optical roughness gauge
measurement of roughness in range Ra= 0.1 – 3.0 um.
Gauge is immune to mechanical vibrations and
stray light.

Z-Coordinate from Microscopy Defocus

This option transforms a standard microscope
to a tool for precise topography measurement
of rough or feature rich samples.

Samples are brought in and out of focus using a
precision piezo stage. The defocused images
are then analyzed using a proprietary algorithm
to recover the topography and roughness of the

The unit is sold as an attachment to the
standard ZebraOptical Microscope system.

Technology is similar to that presented in the
Small Splatter metrology tool in our standard

This system is limited to samples
which have feature rich surfaces, for which the
system can measure and analyze defocused
System is not suitable for the
measurement of smooth surfaces.

Field of view: ~100 um x 80 um
Depth of field: 0.18 um
Z resolution 0.1 um
Piezo Resolution: 0.03 um

The system is comprised of the Standard
ZebraOptical Microscopy system, the range
from defocus attachment, a control box
(similar to that pictured above), and a PC
including the image processing software.

Recovered sample topography using small
sample metrology system. The accuracy and
reproducibility depends on type of objective

Principle of Operation:
A precision stage varies the z-position of the sample
to produce both focused and blurred images.

reverse side of a US cent.
Roughness and Surface Properties:
Surface topography calculated using the Z-

Roughness Parameters
Ra (arithmetic average)
RMS (root mean squared)
Rv (maximum valley depth)
Rp (maximum peak height)
Rt (maximum profile height)
Rsk (skew)
Rku (kurtosis)
