Conchology Topography Measurement Using 3D Profilometry

Conchology topography, by scanning the whole surface of an oyster shell, the Nanovea HS2000 Line Sensor will display its ability to work with large samples with abnormal geometries. Reflectivity, transparency, and angles do not affect the data collected with our technology, making 3D Non-Contact Profilometry ideal for all types of samples. Another difficulty that lies with profiling an oyster shell lies in its lack of flat base. Samples typically needs to be securely mounted to the stage to minimize wobbling as the stage move. This usually requires additional sample preparation or fixtures to be used. The smooth air bearing stages on the Nanovea HS2000 Line Sensor, however, drastically minimizes stage noise. Its motorized control of the x, y, and z stages also allows for ease in extending varying height measurement. The extended measurement shown in this study, allows our instrument to capture a full surface that is beyond its pen height range limits (approximately 4mm).
