With over 50 years of experience in optical metrology, we are still eager and curious to push the limits of what is possible. Powerful surface metrology and reliable quality inspections depend on know-how, on insights and on experts. The new Micro.View® and Micro.View®+ are the next generation optical surface profilers from Polytec. Read more, how Focus Finder and Focus Tracker enhance the ease of use, how the CST Continuous Scanning Technology expands the vertical measurement range and how sub-nanometer resolution measurements capture the finest details. This expertise incorporated in these optical profilers results in reliable quality control solutions.
Table-top optical profiler Micro.View®
TopMap Micro.View® is an easy to use and compact optical profiler. Combine exceptional performance and affordability with this powerful profilometer. Its extended 100 mm vertical measurement range combined with the innovative CST Continuous Scanning Technology enables topography anaylis at nm resolution with plenty of freedom for sample handling and positioning.This conventient table-top setup of an optical profiler features integrated electronics and a smart feature called Focus Finder for simplified, fast and efficient areal surface characterization for quality control.
Modular (automated) optical surface profiler Micro.View®+
TopMap Micro.View®+ represents the next generation of optical surface profilers more than any other measurement system within the TopMap line. Micro.View®+ delivers the most detailed topography analysis, detecting all surface details like roughness, texture and microstructure topography. Designed for modularity, this comprehensive surface profiler remains flexible for adaptions to production environements, to application-specific configurations and even semi or fully automated quality control processes. Combine 3D measurment data with color information for amazing visualizations and extended analysis including professional documentation of defects and artefacts. The built-in high-resolution camera delivers incredibly detailed 3D data visualization of all engineered surfaces. The encoded and motorized turret provides seamless switching of microscope objectives. The optical profiler Micro.View®+ also features the latest Focus Finder plus Focus Tracker, keeping the surface in optimum focus at all circumstances. The fully motorized sample positioning stages allow for stitching and automated inspections.
TopMap - the family of optical surface profilers
Meet TopMap - the series of optical 3D surface profling or measurement systems are in their element in all operations where the finest components and structures need to be inspected. Non-contact white-light interferometry allows measurements with a resolution in the nanometer or even subnanometer range. And it’s for this very reason that Polytec’s TopMap devices have become standard tools in the field of industrial quality control.
Join us on our journey: From first ideas to prototyping, development until making our vision of the next generation surface profilers come true. On that journey, meet the PolyXperts, take a look behind the scenes and listen to what the people behind the TopMap brand expirienced during this genesis of our optical surface profilers Micro.View® and Micro.View®+.
How optical profilers capture the finest details
Micro.View® keeps an eye on the details, seeing beauty even within the tiniest surfaces, vizualizing the measured data in colorful and excellent resolution, just like here. Guess what you see here!
We are modular
Flexibility with modular configuration is what we wanted. A 100 mm z-range, motorized tip/tilt stage and encoded objective turret are a few of the options. The + in Micro.View+ stands for smart configuration, automation ready, in-line integration and accurate analysis of roughness, texture, microstructures and tribology.
We are enlightened
Light is our element! White-light brings out the finest details of your precision engineered surfaces. Microscope objectives characterize surface finish and quantify how rough or smooth. Focus light on your engineering, without bias or contact.
We measure surfaces
We had a vision! We had our mock-up. We had questions. We had fun, and most importantly, success! From now on, the easy-to-interpret visualizations of 3D measurement data shall speak for themselves. It may look like art, but it is in fact your precision engineered surface – just in high resolution. Pure 3D data, without contact, without influencing the measurement itself.
We are handcrafting
We had a vision! Using 100% recycled material in our 3D surface profilers, we started with this lightweight mockup, connected an xy stage and watched… well, it did not measure any surface data, but at least we stayed eco-friendly.

We are Xperts! Hi, Sebastian!
Screams of despair from his office and rollercoaster rides through crash testing – R&D Project Manager Sebastian tells the inside story. What do you think he answers, when asked about the extension of being hacked off from the Sales team?
We are Xperts! Hi, Özgür!
What fills an enthusiastic Product Manager with pride, why is a hairdresser essential for this product launch? And, can an unexperienced user really perform complex measurements? Find out when we talk to PolyXpert Özgür!
We are crash testing
Reliability is all about trust. To earn yours, we test our products in harsh environments ... really harsh. Besides, we think super slow-mo videos are super impressive, super awesome and super dramatic. Join us while we're crash testing!
We are shaking
Precision is the DNA of our optical surface metrology systems. We put our systems through some tough tests to ensure performance even in the most challenging environments. Besides this cheap looking bubble-wrap, all components are the best of their class.
We are baking
Germans are not only good at bread baking… With over 50 years of experience in optical metrology, we put our grandmothers‘ finest recipes to the test. Baking in environmental chambers requires patience with a touch of magic to yield such captivating results and high-fidelity 3D measurement data.
