In Situ Morphology at High Temperature Using 3D Profilometry

High temperature environment can change the surface texture, roughness and shapes of materials, resulting in device malfunction and mechanical failures. To ensure the quality of materials or devices used at elevated temperatures, accurate and reliable in situ morphology monitoring of the shape evolution at high temperatures is in need to provide insight into the mechanism of material deformation. Moreover, real-time monitoring of surface morphology at high temperatures is very useful in materials processing, such as laser machining. The Nanovea 3D Non-Contact Profilometers measure the surface morphology of materials without touching the sample, avoiding introducing additional scratches or shape alteration which may be caused by contact technologies such as sliding stylus. Its capacity of non-contact measurement also makes it possible to measure the shape of melted samples.
