Customized Interferometer Systems

µPhase® integrated into a turning machine
µPhase® integrated into a turning machine

TRIOPTICS offers extensive support for specialized systems for applications beyond the scope of standard measuring systems. The μPhase® is very versatile with its high modularity and the compact design of the interferometer. This means that customized solutions for special measurement tasks can be implemented on the basis of standard components. The required components are selected and, if required, additional made-to-measure components and software modules are developed by our application and software engineers.
