ZEISS 3DSM – Analyze Topographical Samples in 3D

3DSM

3D surface modelling

Use Your SEM to Reconstruct the Surfaces of Your Samples in 3D

Your scanning electron microscope measures and analyzes all kinds of samples in 2D: to analyze the surfaces of samples in 3D, use 3DSM, the optional sotware package from ZEISS. Get topographical information by reconstructing a complete 3D model of your sample’s surface using the signals of the aBSD or the AsB detector.

Highlights

3DSM

  • Perform a 3D surface reconstruction of samples examined with electron microscopes equipped with an AsB (Angular selective Backscatter) or aBSD (annular Backscatter) detector
  • Combine 3DSM with SmartSEM , the software that operates the SEM, for real-time 3D imaging or operate in stand-alone mode to visualize archived project files
  • Profit from real-time operation and reconstruction times < 2s

3DSM Metrology

  • Upgrade your ZEISS FE-SEM with the optional package 3DSM Metrology to gain automatic measurements and documentation in compliance with ISO 25178, DIN and ASME and other standards for routine checks
  • Analyze surfaces in 3D and generate complete measurement records
  • Characterize surfaces and profiles including parameters such as step height, distance, nanometer scaled contour, roughness and waviness, particle and grain size
  • Create completely traceable metrological reports
