Nikon has developed a technology to form a coating with very low refractive index even in the vacuum UV region, and greatly improved the angular performance of antireflection coating. This ultra-low refractive index coating is called Nanoparticle Coating because the size of the particles that compose this coating ranges from a few nanometers to just more than 10 nanometers.
Nikon Metrology offers a complete range of metrology solutions including Coordinate Measuring Machines(CMMs), Optical CMMs, 3D laser scanners, X-ray and Computed Tomography (CT), Optical CNC measuring systems , Laser Radar, iGPS /iSpace systems, and metrology software for 3D scanning, 3D digitizing, 3D inspection and reverse engineering.
