November 7, 2018

Since SPM specialists Image Metrology and Digital Surf joined forces, development teams from both companies have been working hard to create the next generation of SPM image analysis software.


29 January

Meet Digital Surf experts on the EU-Japan Centre booth at the Nano Tech Exhibition from January 29 to February 1 in Tokyo, Japan.

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 MountainsMap® software packages directly to instrument users. Mountains® has an installed base of 12,000+ licenses worldwide, is available in 11 languages, supports ISO and national metrology standards and is supplied by 50+ instrument manufacturers.

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


Semiconductors: characterizing 3D structures at the nanoscale

Nanolithography is a precise patterning technology used to fabricate functional nanostructures for applications in biosensors, advanced materials and extensively in the semiconductor sector for solar cells, printed electronics, LED, MEMS, etc.

Solar cell pyramids – visualization of 3D surface topography

Pyramid-shaped solar cells are particularly effective for converting energy from the sun into usable energy without the problem of overheating. In a study on solar cell performance enhancement, industrial researchers used MountainsMap® to visualize surface topography in 3D and overlay a color image of solar cells on topography.

Surface texture parameters: why so complex?

Surface texture has always been a difficult discipline to master, due to complex filtration conditions and numerous parameters. ISO expert François Blateyron looks how this could be simplified in the future.
