The Zygo New View 6300 is a scanning white light and optical phase-shifting interferometer used for quantifying surface roughness, step heights and other topographical features.  The measurements are fast and non-destructive. The Zygo is equipped with a range of objectives and has a field of view from 0.04 to 21.9 mm.

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
