Part of the recently launched Optium product line, this unique system quickly inspects and classifies thin film filters, enabling high volume, high yield manufacturing.

"With this tool manufacturers can automate their current manual inspection and sorting of DWDM filters, which speeds up production ramps and drives down component costs," said Lloyd LaComb, Vice President and General Manager of Veeco Metrology Group.
