TESCAN SEM VEGA3 for 3D surface reconstructions
In this application note we use the scanning electron microscope TESCAN VEGA3 with the Alicona MeX 3D Metrology software for evaluation of pitting and inspection of reflective surfaces. Surfaces are examined in search for impurities, cracks, pores, dents and signs of corrosion.

Quality Control of Metal Surfaces Using 3D Reconstruction (Alicona MeX 3D Metrology)
Quality control and testing is an important and inseparable part of the manufacturing process of smooth reflective surfaces. The surfaces are examined in search for impurities, cracks, pores, dents and signs of corrosion. A localised form of corrosion, called pitting, leads to the formation of small cavities which can grow deep below the surface. In this application note we use the scanning electron microscope VEGA3 equipped with the Alicona MeX 3D Metrology software for surface inspection and evaluation of pitting in a reflective surface sample of the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) telescope.
