3D Optical Profilers

Worldwide leader in 3D non-contact surface measurement and inspection technology

Fast, Non-Contact 3D Optical Profiling

Bruker is the industry-leading provider of 3D surface measurement and inspection solutions, offering systems for fast, reliable, and easy-to-use non-contact analyses with best-in-class accuracy on samples ranging in size from microscopic MEMS to entire engine blocks. They provide researchers and engineers in R&D, manufacturing, and quality control the industry-leading sensitivity and stability necessary for precision 3D surface measurements in applications and environments that are challenging for other metrology systems.


Based on ten generations of proprietary Wyko® white light interferometry (WLI) technology and Bruker advances, our optical profiling metrology systems have a proven record of supporting leading-edge R&D, QA, and QC in labs and production environments around the world.

Surface-Independent Metrology with Application-Specific Solutions

Precision Engineering

Keep the surface texture and geometric dimensions of precision-engineered parts within tight specification limits. Our gage-capable measurement systems provide efficient feedback and reporting as you monitor, track, and evaluate processes and assess GD&T conformance.

MEMS and Sensors

Perform high-throughput, highly repeatable etch depth, film thickness, step-height, and surface roughness measurements, as well as advanced critical dimension metrology of MEMS and optical MEMS. Optical profiling can characterize devices throughout the manufacturing process from wafer to final test, and even through transparent packaging.


Obtain precise, repeatable measurements of implant materials and components through the complete product life cycle. Our WLI optical profilers support R&D, QA, and QC analyses, for applications ranging from characterization of surface parameters of lens and injection molds to surface finish verification and wear of medical devices.


Measure, analyze, and control the impact of friction, wear, lubrication, and corrosion on material/component performance and lifespans. Determine quantitative wear parameters and perform fast pass/fail inspections on the widest range of shiny, smooth, or rough surfaces.


Improve yield and reduce costs for both front- and back-end manufacturing processes with automated, non-contact, wafer-scale metrology systems. Perform post-CMP die flatness inspection; bump height, coplanarity, and defect identification and analysis; and measure the critical dimensions of component structures.


Better understand the root causes of defects and optimize polishing and finishing processes with accurate and repeatable sub-nm roughness measurements. Our non-contact metrology systems enable compliance with increasingly stringent specifications and ISO norms for samples ranging from small aspheric and free-form optics, to optical components with complex geometries, to diffraction gratings and microlenses.
