The patent-pending Revolutionary, a noncontact optical depth-sensing technique developed by the Nanovea Div. of Micro Photonics Inc., produces 100 percent accurate height measurements during micro/macro scratch and hardness testing of coatings and substrate materials. Because the precise depth of the indenter can be determined without contact, sample motion is not an issue, and the true depth of the indenter can be directly recorded. The technique can be used on materials of any shape or texture.
