The MPLAPON line of plan apochromatic objectives has been unveiled by Olympus Europa Holding GmbH for use in industrial imaging applications. The devices provide good chromatic aberration correction over a broad wavelength range for materials imaging. Available in 50x and 100x magnifications, they provide good bright-field imaging, including differential interference contrast. They have numerical apertures of 0.95 and are compatible with active autofocusing units. They also are suitable for inspecting minute areas in industrial imaging samples, such as semiconductor patterns. Their high resolution enables individual imaging and observation of points separated by only 0.35 µm. The company’s wavefront aberration control process quantitatively measures small aberrations and eliminates them to yield objectives with strehl ratios of at least 95%.
