We would be pleased to welcome you to our booth #315 at the next SciX Conference taking place in Sparks, NV from October 9 to 11.

Digital Surf has been developing surface imaging & metrology software for profilers and microscopes since 1989

Our main focus is on working as a partner with instrument manufacturers worldwide, in the fields of surface metrology and microscopy. Mountains® software is now offered by the majority of profilometer and microscope manufacturers and is embedded in their equipment or available as an option.

Digital Surf also provides Mountains® software packages directly to instrument users. Mountains® has an installed base of 22,000+ licenses worldwide, is available in 11 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards and is supplied by 50+ instrument manufacturers.

Application areas include: automotive, materials science, semiconductors, medical, aerospace, MEMS, renewable energy, etc.


Determining surface quality of cap layers in superconductors

Researchers at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona characterizied surface texture of superconductor materials with the aim of improving their performance.

Imaging fish scale topography in situ

Researchers at Purdue and Harvard universities explored fish scale surfaces in 3D using MountainsMap® software.

How stable is my surface texture evaluation?

July 17, 2023

Observing a change in value of 0.1% between two versions of your analysis software does not necessarily mean that there is a bug. In this article François Blateyron discusses why results may vary and good practices to ensure they remain stable.
