Small Change

Our optical tools are so powerful and precise that if you sent one into Low Earth Orbit, it could read the date on a coin lying on a sidewalk.

Super Star

Our broadband plasma wafer inspector uses a light source that’s 100 times brighter than the surface of the sun. It can find defects as small as 6 nanometers—the diameter of a DNA strand.

Butterfly Effect

Our detectors can measure a one nanometer deviation. That’s the deflection caused by a butterfly landing on a fence.
