Surface Analysis




Designed for life science and material inspection microscopes, SID4-sC8 brings fast, accurate and truly quantitative phase measurement in a compact, plug-and-play solution.
Biologists will benefit from label-free cell imaging, high sensitivity and automatic segmentation, while material scientists will have access to accurate refractive index measurement, laser damage analysis and surface characterization.

SID4 range and Software


COMPLETE BEAM CHARACTERIZATION | High resolution wavefront analysis software

The SID4 software package manages wavefront acquisition and analysis with one of our wavefront sensors. This software is entirely dedicated to laser beam analysis. It eases the use of the wavefront sensor (camera settings, acquisition modes, alignment helpers, automatic mask adjustment) and provides relevant tools for beam phase analysis: PSF, wavefront aberrations, laser beam parameters, beam profiles…
