Zygo enhances Verifire laser interferometers

Middlefield, CT. Zygo Corp. has announced the latest addition to its Verifire family of laser interferometer and optical testing products. Verifire laser interferometers employ advanced software and hardware technology to ensure precision metrology and characterization of optical components and systems in both manufacturing and laboratory environments.

This latest addition to the Verifire line is configured with key capabilities that establish a robust, high-quality, and flexible laser interferometer with a low cost of ownership. Its true Fizeau on-axis optical system provides the basis for its high-accuracy metrology capabilities. Patented QPSI vibration-tolerant acquisition technology provides the instrument with its ability to obtain reliable measurements in production environments.

At the core of the system is a proprietary, frequency-stabilized laser that delivers high output and life-long reliability, backed by a 3-year warranty, ensuring maximum up-time and dependability.

“The new Verifire interferometer represents additional value and lower cost of ownership for our customers,” remarked Tyler Steele, product manager for laser interferometers at ZYGO. “With the enhanced capabilities, performance, and warranty coverage of our standard entry-level system, we can now offer an extremely capable, well-equipped instrument at a more accessible price point for the industry.”

The Verifire product includes a continuously variable optical zoom that can be operated in horizontal or vertical configurations. The system is offered in various output beam aperture sizes and is supported by a range of ZYGO manufactured and certified accessories.

The new Verifire is controlled by ZYGO’s Mx software platform, which includes new features for improved performance and usability, including SmartAveraging and SmartRemote compatibilities. SmartAveraging is a software feature that optimizes measurement quality by automatically acquiring the appropriate number of averages required to ensure the desired level of certainty, minimizing operator variability. SmartRemote is a wireless hand-held device used to control the instrument, providing users with enhanced functionality, ease of use, and remote instrument operation.

Zygo is a unit of AMETEK Ultra Precision Technologies Division.
